Giving Thanks for What We Have

So many of us are busy running around to the grocery store to pick up those necessary foods to prepare for our feasts. We run and get a cart and browse the aisles with our lists in hand. It all gets packed up into bags and then home to be prepare. As the busy holiday season comes upon us, we really need to stop and slow down as many people are reminded. Think about how lucky we are to have that ability to simply get our food off of shelves and from refrigerators. We hardly do any work to get the food we eat.

Happy Thanksgiving to all and remember that very person who grew that food for you each day you sit down to eat. It was a farmer who did the work to get you your food. Thank that farmer every day for you what you are lucky to have.

Just a few more thoughts in photos about what our farmers do for us!
