Happy Thanksgiving!

I wish you every blessing on this day of thanking God for his bounty. In honor of this day and it's history I leave you with a link to a telling of Thanksgiving's history at Plimoth.org.

An exerpt from the Plymouth Plantation site reads:

In a letter from “E.W.” (Edward Winslow) to a friend in England, he says: “And God be praised, we had a good increase…. Our harvest being gotten in, our governor sent four men on fowling that so we might after a special manner rejoice together….” Winslow continues, “These things I thought good to let you understand… that you might on our behalf give God thanks who hath dealt so favourably with us.”
"After a special manner rejoice together." Yes, let's!
