This is How it Looked
Thanksgiving was always a big party at our house. For twenty years we gathered with friends--and sometimes friends of friends and complete strangers--at this table. I cooked the turkey, the stuffing, the potatoes, the pumpkin pies and friends brought all measure of good things to the feast. I miss them, but now, for the second year, I will be at my son's house. My family is spread out all over the country. I am thankful that I have each of them in my lives even though they aren't near enough to pass me the cranberries. I am thankful for about a billion things.
