Right now, I have an apple pie in the oven, a turkey thawing in water because it’s still too frozen and I started to panic, and children who have been so helpful today around the house as we prepare to entertain for Thanksgiving.
No matter how that turkey turns out, we will all be together tomorrow, and that’s really all that matters.
Today’s words of wisdom come from Meister Eckhart, who was a German theologian, philosopher and mystic, born near Gotha, in the Holy Roman Empire. He lived from 1260 until 1328, and his insight on being thankful is so beautifully put.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough.
~ Meister Eckhart
