Love this twist of phrase so much, and so thankful for the last two days, gotta share the, well, GRATITUDE.
Two days of celebration with two sides of the family: mine yesterday, my wife’s today. The common denominator? Easy company (if not down right camaraderie), good conversations, delicious food, warmth and respite shared.
If I think about it a bit, I suspect the early Thanksgivings celebrated by those first settlers in the American colonies had similar experiences. Together with family and friends and folks they didn’t know very well, but all happy to be together to share what they had, and be thankful.
Which is the whole idea, anyway.
