giving thanks

Maybe I am feeling a little sentimental and nostalgic, but I still love all the Charlie Brown specials.  Even though it was originally broadcast in 1973, I still haven't gotten tired of watching it.


"In the year 1621, the Pilgrims held their first Thanksgiving feast.  They invited the great Indian chief Massasoit, who brought ninety of his brave Indians and a great abundance of food. Governor William Bradford and Captain Miles Standish were honored guests. Elder William Brewster, who was a minister, said a prayer that went something like this: 


'We thank God for our homes and our food and our safety in a new land. We thank God for the opportunity to create a new world 
for freedom and justice. 
Amen.'"


These are all things I am thankful for today and everyday.  Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. I hope you spend it with people you love.

  1. I hope you have a good Thanksgiving! The sound of the Peanuts music and narration takes me back instantly--hard to even articulate the nostalgia.

  3. I adore 'Charlie Brown' and have loved the character Snoopy since I was a girl. We only get the specials now and again here so Youtube is great. Thanks for reminding me of my younger days I feel quite cheery now. Hope you had a very happy Thanksgiving.
