    Thank you! This was a beautiful moment in my day. Peace to you, and to all, at this time.

      You’re most welcome, Regina. We’re delighted that you found the time spent with us nourishing.

    That made me feel. Thank you

      You’re very welcome, dear Sue. Feeling is indeed a good thing! Have a beautiful Thanksgiving.

    Peace and love to both of you. I don’t care if Ringo says it all the time, it is my new mantra and my greeting and my exodus all in one. Thank you for the beautiful work you do. The rewards for being beautifully human (and for most of us beautifully flawed) are the feelings that we matter, that we make a difference in the universe if only in some small ripple in the vast scheme of things. So peace and love to both of you, you have blessed me beyond words.

      Thank you, Paul, for your kind words. May you have a beautiful Thanksgiving filled with love and gratitude.
