Sunset in Santa Monica–it looked like I was walking in a painting!

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope your November has been full of friends and family and time to restore your soul.

Enjoy this video of my Uncle Stu carving up THREE Thanksgiving turkeys! I loved being back together with so much of our family for Thanksgiving dinner.

A Thanksgiving Prayer by Rabbi Naomi Levy
For the laughter of the children,
For my own life breath,
For the abundance of food on this table,
For the ones who prepared this sumptuous feast,
For the roof over our heads,
The clothes on our backs,
For our health,
And our wealth of blessings.
For this opportunity to celebrate with family and friends,
For the freedom to pray these words
Without fear,
In any language,
In any faith,
In this great country,
Whose landscape is as vast and beautiful as her inhabitants.
Thank You, God, for giving us all these. Amen.
( Talking to God: Personal Prayers for Times of Joy, Sadness, Struggle, and Celebration)
