Thanksgiving blessings to all!

Someone like me -- blessed with wonderful family and friends and health and so much else -- could write forever on the subject of Thanksgiving, both generally and about the day itself.

Instead, with a heartful of gratitude, I'm linking to my two favorite Thanksgiving hymns ("We Gather Together" and "Come, Ye Thankful People, Come"). And The Wall Street Journal has a wonderful op/ed from yesterday titled "A Very Christian Day," (subscription only) wherein David Gelertner makes the point that the Pilgrims fall within the category of the much-maligned fundamentalist Christians, and notes that they "feasted with the Indians -- but did not try to convert them." And here is another expression of Thanksgiving for America.

Finally, today of all days, let us not forget our brave men and women in harms way; we give grateful thanks for their courage and ask God's blessings for all of them. (If you want to express your thanks in a more concrete way, too, do check out Soldiers' Angels.)

Finally, thank you, dear readers and listeners, for the volume of kind, generous and supportive email and comments -- and just for being there. Today, with all my other blessings, I give thanks for each and every one of you -- and wish you and yours every blessing this Thanksgiving Day and in the year to come.
