Cornucopia may be a tough word to spell but it's so full
of meaning especially this time of year. This beautiful hearty display also called a
horn of plenty represents abundance
and nourishment which is why it has become the perfect symbol of Thanksgiving.
A holiday where we come together to share our bounty from a year of harvest, yet
during this season of gratitude we are also reminded of those who may be
experiencing a season of less bounty. This is where we are drawn to pull from
our own harvest and open the door to our heart by sharing those blessings
around the table, in our homes and in our communities.
As we appreciate
this display of abundance as the centerpiece of our Thanksgiving table we can create our own living cornucopia allowing gratitude to overflow
from our hearts by giving to those in need. There are plenty of people
within our community who can benefit from our offerings. If you are considering
where you can share your blessings this season, here are a few local organizations
that would welcome your generous spirit of giving thanks from your bountiful
