Rest and Be Thankful


“Give me the splendid silent sun,

with all his beams full-dazzling;

Give me juicy autumnal fruit, ripe

and red from the orchard;

Give me a field where the

unmow’d grass grows;

Give me an arbor, give me the trellis’d grape;

Give me fresh corn and wheat – give me

serene-moving animals, teaching content.”

– Walt Whitman –


“Rest and be thankful.”

– William Wordsworth –


Nurture peace, cultivate loving kindness, carry the calm, and have a Happy Thanksgiving!
