Thanksgiving 2013

Thanksgiving 2013



We thank Thee for food and remember the hungry.

We thank Thee for health and remember the sick.

We thank Thee for freedom and remember the enslaved.

May these remembrances stir us to service,

That our gifts be used for others. Amen.


I am also so grateful to you, my readers, for supporting this new blog…..very grateful. I will be back to full posts on Monday. Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving everyone! And Happy First Day of Hanukkah!

  1. Happy Belated Thanksgiving, Charisse and family!

    Robert and I are truly thankful for you. We are so impressed by your artistry
    that is embellished by your giving spirit. I feel like I am a member of your cyber family and we share every holiday together. Through modern technology we are able to enjoy your home, yard, food, shopping, art, family, and your dreams with you. Thanks for your Giving!!!!!

    Love, Victoria ( and Robert, Mia and Connor)

    • Victoria,
      Thank you for such a sweet note! It is indeed, because of technology,that I am able to “meet” new people that I might never have been able to connect with. It creates new friendships that are special, even though virtual. I have so enjoyed getting to know some of my readers, like you and Robert, and hope someday that time and circumstance will allow us to meet in person. I feel so blessed to have the readers I do, and their support. It is an honor and a responsibility I take quite seriously, although “whimsical” does enter the picture a bit! Blessings to you and the family. charisse
