308|365 Brimming Basket (11/8/11)
Each day as we approach Thanksgiving Day, many people are sharing something for which they are thankful. God, family, friends, health, job, food, pets, hobbies, etc.
The cornucopia has become an important symbol of American Thanksgiving. Its origins apparently go back in time to the ancient Greek myths where young Zeus gave his foster mother Amalthaea a goat’s horn that could be filled with whatever she wished.
This cornucopia, which I have had for many years, is my only decoration for the season of thanksgiving. I figuratively fill this horn of plenty with things and people I enjoy to serve as a reminder of the good things in life. What is in your brimming basket?
