The house is quiet this early morning as I ready the kitchen for a day of cooking. Our daughter got in last night and will help today, which is always fun. Our son and daughter-in-law are going to my dad's to cook dinner there today. Thanksgiving to me is all about family being together. That is far more important than the turkey, pie and all the other goodies.
I remember a few years early in our marriage when we were alone for Thanksgiving. It felt strange after years of big family gatherings. Yet it also was a chance to create our family traditions, ones we would share with our children (It also gave me a chance to learn how to prepare a Thanksgiving on my own, as my husband was most forgiving).
Today, I wish for each of you a wonderful day to give thanks for the good things in life, whatever they may be!
