I remember reading Thornton Wilder’s “Bridge Over San Louis Rey” Thanksgiving weekend in 1968. I only remember that I enjoyed reading it – I could not remember the plot, so I researched it on the web and soon realized why it won the Pulitzer Prize in 1927. After I refreshed my memory on the plot I discovered a very meaningful quote attributed to the author:

“We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.”

I can honestly say that the Parish family were all very much “alive” yesterday as we were all very conscious and thankful of our family & friends – what treasures!

What a group!

On a day like yesterday, I realize that all to often we probably take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude…we have so much to be thankful for…family!
