Beauty in the Ordinary

This is not about being brilliant, or extraordinary, it's not about wanting to be famous, or making headlines, or trying to impress...this about sharing a 'gift' each day with the lift the spirit of people when they read this blog, to show them the beauty in the ordinary.
"And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it." Raold Dahl

All Things Bright and Beautiful...

All creatures great

 and small,

All things wise and wonderful,

The Lord, God made them all.

My daughter and son-in-law are celebrating their first Thanksgiving 
in their new homeland today in the best possible way...
hosting lunch for 15!  
The most heart-warming part of it all,
likely only one or two around the table will have been born in the US.

A true celebration of the welcoming spirit of the New World.
