I believe that a great tradition to add to any Thanksgiving gathering is to take time before filling plates and over indulging in the feast to ask each person present this one question:

What are you thankful for?

The answers from people you thought you knew well might surprise you.

One thing I was thankful for was my visit to the Chihuly Glass Exhibit at Meijer Gardens in Grand Rapids, MI in October. Marvelous! Photo Judy Winter 2010.
