The last word (or the first!) for Thanksgiving

Several years ago we had Thanksgiving dinner at our house.

As our family sat around the table, enjoying the wonderful southern Thanksgiving meal of turkey and stuffing and biscuits I asked each one to mention one thing they were thankful for.

Someone said thanks for the delicious meal. Others for the weather and the beauty of the fall. and we all agreed, and added for family and so many other good things.

Then at the very end, granddaughter Leighton, who was 7 or 8 at the time, looked up from her plate and said, very matter of factly, “I am thankful for God”!

Thank you, Leighton. You got it. Absolutely right!
