“For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Through the simple act of volunteering to tend a garden – and sharing it with you here – a world has opened to me. For the community I have found, the endless generosity of others, and the countless pups who have touched my heart this year – I give thanks.
Not all of those who visit here share the Thanksgiving holiday. There are other things that bind us. And so, I have one more quote for you today:
“Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving.” ~ W.T. Purkiser
For all of you, and all you do – thanks for your giving – from the Homeward Bound Memorial Garden.
