By holding up a fancied golden era of yesteryear, we can devalue where we are and who we have become. Thanksgiving aims at gratitude not for what was, but for what is.

Ask a 3 year old an open ended question and you never know what you are going to get. Ask them what they are thankful for and they will say…………………………..
Fishsticks!. Gorton’s will love this video. Save a Turkey – Eat a fishstick. We tried to give her Fishsticks a couple of times and she didn’t really dig them, yet she is thankful for them.
Happy Thanksgiving Everybody!
Art isn’t just painting. There are many ways people create and here I’d like to share some of the poems that Mary Kate Canavan sent in from her GHS 9th Grade Honors Class.
Horizon a glass bottle
Sour scent of fish and pizza
Seagulls cawing; familiar greetings; the sea breeze whistles
Eccentric sorts with carrying personalities; not one just like another
Little sister comes home. I am diagnosed with middle child syndrome
Dog comes into house. She pees on the floor
Trapped in school overnight. No way out. Plus monster.
Huge glasses; tight Just Keep Dancing sweatshirt; carries pencil
If you don’t imagine, nothing happens
Breeze changes with the seasons.
Ocean splashes, crashing violently against rocks.
I’d never heard of it til Patricia showed me but apparently she doesn’t go anywhere without her travel set of Pass the Pigs. Who Knew?
A BIG thank you for all your love and support during the past year. I’m so grateful for friends here on GMG. Enjoy the day and let the holidays begin!!! —Sharon
