Special Thanksgiving Gratitude Edition

Blog Post created by Laura Gibbs on Nov 23, 2017

I wanted to say a big THANK YOU to all the folks here at the Community who have made this such a great place for learning: I have really enjoyed this past year of connecting and sharing, and I appreciate you all so much!


In the spirit of the "thanks" in Thanksgiving, there are some great videos in my Thanksgiving class announcements:


Online Course Announcements: Thanksgiving Break Edition  

... that's what greets my students in Canvas during our holiday break, and the videos really are lovely (if you have not watched Gratitude, a film by Louie Schwartzberg, featuring the words of Brother David Steindl-Rast, today is a perfect day for that; it's embedded in the announcements).

And there are GRATIA-CATS at my Latin blog for the holiday. Gratias agamus, let us give thanks on this Dies Gratiarum, Day of Thanks. :-)


Bestiaria Latina: Special Thanksgiving Edition  ... here are a few cats; more at the blog!


Gratia gratiam parit.


Non gladio, sed gratia.
Not by means of the sword, but by means of GRATIA.


In omnibus gratias agite.
In all things, do GRATIAS.
