Giving Thanks Always

Sharing a beautiful song to observe thanksgiving.


I share a video with you today.   It is a “flashwaltz” which happened, where else, in a hospital (after all, this is a health blog) .

Music students played The Waltz of the Flowers from

The Nutcracker by 

Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky at the

Hadassah Medical Center Hospital.



As we in the United States celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday, let’s remember people who can’t celebrate at home with their friends and family-

  • people in hospitals and nursing homes
  • those serving in the military
  • those who work today to keep the rest of us safe- police, firefighters, medical professionals, transportation workers

The Waltz of the Flowers by the Boston Pops is available at Amazon
