Happy Thanksgiving

“The First Thanksgiving at Plymouth” (1914) By Jennie A. Brownscombe

Happy Thanksgiving to all. For many of us, this has been a difficult year, as it was for the pilgrims depicted in the idyllic scene above. Yet we all have some reason to be thankful—a kind friend, a faithful pet, a family (even if they’re contentious), a small success, hope for the future, a happy memory—something. Be thankful for the smile of a stranger; be thankful for the happy child you saw yesterday; be thankful for the soldier who returned home alive, for the beauty of a sunrise. And if you’re feeling down and can think of nothing for which to give thanks, rest assured that we at the Woodstock Council for World Peace extend our love to you; we love you, and be thankful for that. We extend our best wishes and all our love to every person on this day, affirm our hope, and promise to continue our quest for a more peaceful world.
