This prompt got me thinking about gathering rosebuds 'whilst ye may', and then a song started in my head. Remember the grade-school singing of 'We gather together to ask the lord's blessing'?
Yes, Thanksgiving is certainly a time to tune in to giving thanks for everyday, and for everything we've got -food, family, and a warm hearth. When my family was together during the holiday, we'd go around the table and take our turn recounting that for which we were grateful. On the spur of the moment, and depending on the age of the family member, some of the comments were amusing. But the message was received, and we all ate the turkey with smiles on our faces.
So, we all need to gather our rosebuds while we may...
