My First Thanksgiving!

Greetings to all, it's me, Polargold's Margaret Thatcher!  It's my very first Thanksgiving, as you may know, so I've been trying to learn all I can about this wonderful American holiday. I asked Cammie and Zim, and they said it's about WAY more than turkey, sweet potatoes, and football. They told me about the Puritans - the Pilgrims - who came to America seeking religious freedom. I went back through the Ao4 archives and learned a great deal from some previous posts, then I saw Mom watching a new video and decided to watch it with her.

"Oooh, the voyage of the Mayflower!"

"The signing of the Mayflower Compact.  A very important document in our nation's history!
Wow.  The very first line mentions God!"

"Sharing their feast with Squanto and friends- 
and giving thanks to God!!!"

Here's the short video we watched -- please take a look!



I hope you enjoyed that as much as we did!

"What a great Thanksgiving lesson!  Thank you, Mr. Stuart Shepherd!"

Here at Ao4 Headquarters, we give thanks to God for our countless blessings and freedom!

I shared the message with Cam!

And then we shared with Zimmie!

Psalm 107:1
"Oh give thanks to the LORD, for He is good, for His steadfast love endures forever!"

Happy Thanksgiving - from all of us to all of you!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher
