As we do most every year, Thanksgiving will be at our home. The kids will help me today with the pies and the baking, and we'll spend much of our time readying the house for our guests. One of the families that is spending the holiday at our house is generously supplying our turkey: a large tom that weighed in at forty pounds right before his demise. We are guaranteed that our bird is indeed a free-range organic treat, and I am hoping that at least fifteen of those pounds are feathers, blood, and organs. My oven is a small wall model and I am trying to picture stuffing this bird into my oven...he is on his way right now to the house, and I am trying to stop referring to our dinner with the masculine pronoun. IT is on IT's way, our dinner.
I imagine today is a busy day, with everyone traveling or bustling at home or working a shift and thinking of all that needs to be done after work - so to everyone who has a few minutes to sit at the computer and take a read: stay safe and have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
We truly have so much to be thankful for, and my own cup runneth over with gratitude for my health, my family's health, our happiness, and the abundance of opportunity we have in this country.
