A Day of Thanks...

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty Evolution - Topsfield, MA 92593-B

The day has arrived, Thanksgiving Day 2022. On this day we are called to unite as one family and offer our praises and thanksgiving to our Creator and Sustainer for the many blessings He has bestowed upon us. It doesn't mean we didn't have struggles or even hardships along the pathway. Our Sustainer brings us through those and many times what we thought was a hardship turned out to actually be a blessing..

We live in a land of abundance. If you don't think so go talk to the burgeoning public storage industry. We have abundance which is to be shared with those that may not. 

There are two documents we need to remember. One is the Mayflower Compact of 1620 and the other is President George Washington's Proclamation for a Day of  Thanksgiving delivered in 1789

The Mayflower Compact is the first governing document of the new land. It was signed by 41 on the ship before they disembarked. Note: There were 102 passengers. The document establishes our purpose for being here and how we will govern ourselves.

Both Houses of Congress instructed President George Washington to issue a Thanksgiving Proclamation which he did on October 3rd, 1789 declaring November 26 next a day of Thanksgiving.

Pam & I wish each of you and your families a day of abundance and happiness on this Thanks Giving Day November 24, 2022. 

God Bless each of you, God Bless our country, God Bless our leaders (nationally and locally), and may we allow God to guide each of us each and every day.

Hi Doug- I hope that you and Pam had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Despite what is going on in our country, we are all blessed to have been born here or to have made our way here. I'd forgotten all about the Mayflower Compact.

Good morning Doug. We are not without our faults but we are still miles ahead of any alternative. Just ask those who constantly say they will leave, but choose to stay. Enjoy your day.

Hi Doug - when we consider that the Pilgrims created more graves than huts and yet gave thanks we have so much to be thankful for.

The Pilgrims did have a difficult time and many in their party passed on Grant Schneider. There were 102 passengers on the Mayflower and 52 survived the first year.

Good evening Doug,

I'm so glad that Kathy Streib featured your post in her "Ah-ha" moments for the week. Somehow I'd forgotten about the Mayflower Compact! Hoping that you and Pam had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Thank you for a memorable post.

Hello Dorie Dillard Austin TX 

Many forget about the Mayflower Compact as being the document stating the reason and intent of their journey to the New World.
