It's holiday week with family visiting.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
UPDATE: Pretty quiet here now after the hectic pie/turkey/salad/vegetables/stuffing/mashed potatoes/cranberry sauce excitement of yesterday.
I was just thinking of why Thanksgiving is a really good holiday.
We gathered as family and friends, met some new friends, shared many memories, had some laughs and some reflective moments about those no longer with us in person. We had a chance to review successes and the other results. Contemplating good health news and those lingering things that getting older brings.
While the breaking of bread together is important - it's the people that matter most at Thanksgiving. For them and for the blessings of the past year, it is good to take a pause.
Not having to struggle with gifts issues and working together to put the capstone meal together - it's a sweeter holiday for it.
