"Frodo was now safe in the Last Homely House east of the Sea. That house was, as Bilbo had long ago reported, ‘a perfect house, whether you like food or sleep or story-telling or singing, or just sitting and thinking best, or a pleasant mixture of them all’. Merely to be there was a cure for weariness, fear, and sadness."
- J.R.R. Tolkien's Fellowship of the Ring

A gift for Thanksgiving day

"Cease to inquire what the future has in store, and take as a gift whatever the day brings forth.”
(Each day is a gift. Thank you, dear God, for my life.)
