I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I’m never quite ready to say goodbye to this holiday because it means that beloved fall is officially gone. In keeping with family tradition, I steadfastly refuse to budge from home on day after Thanksgiving. I spent the day slowly easing into Christmas and enjoying quiet. I tend to view the day as an extension of Thanksgiving, so we’ll have one last thankful song for today. “The Lord is Good to Me” is considered Johnny Appleseed’s song, although I’m still not clear if it was a song contemporary with his life. I’ve only heard it in the Disney short about Johnny Appleseed. It’s a sweet, simple song and I thought it would be perfect to end Thanksgiving week.
Oh, and every seed I sow
Will grow into a tree.
And someday there’ll be apples there
For everyone in the world to share.
Oh, the Lord is good to me.
I wake up every day,
As happy as can be,
Because I know that with His care
My apple trees, they will still be there.
The Lord’s been good to me.
The pictures are some of the Thanksgiving cards I made this year. They seemed to fit with the happy tone of the song. I was able to get two really big, important projects wrapped up and off my to-do list today, so I’m going to celebrate with a mug of cider and some quality knitting time. I hope you all are warm and contented this weekend.
