The Art of Being Thankful

Our Dear Prairie Readers,

This is going to be short and sweet.

While working at the indoor farmers' market on Saturday, Prairie Sherry had this pleasant realization that "Have a wonderful Thanksgiving" is the one holiday greeting that is least likely to offend.  

To be sure, too many families in the United States will struggle to put any meal on the Thursday table, save one that includes a big bird and all the trimmings.  Others will be unable to gather because of miles or  family strife.  Some will work because of employment that is needed to keep society functioning.  Others because of corporations that view dollar signs as more valuable than the people employed.  And then there are those who have no home.

While we can't solve all of our nation's problems on Thanksgiving Day, we who are safe, warm, and fed can be doubly thankful for our blessings.

The Prairie Grlz view all of you as among our blessings.  Some of you are relatives, some friends, some acquaintances, and others complete strangers.  We appreciate you joining us and reading our little blog. Each view tallied on our stats board is like a thumbs up and a pat on the back.  Each "like" on Facebook is a greeting.  Each comment is a small conversation.  We feel connected to you, and you have become our Prairie Family.

Our thoughts are with you this week.  We are taking it off to finish up school and then spend time with our families.  Prairie Sherry gets to pick up her college freshman on Tuesday.  Prairie Eydie is heading north to be with our dear Prairie Pa and her ma.

See you next week,
The Prairie Grlz
