No time to write…it’s almost turkey time! So, here’s a rerun for you!
Oh, and Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
Thanksgiving is next week. I can’t believe how calmly I said that.
We celebrate Thanksgiving each year at our house—and by “we” I mean twenty to forty immediate family members!
In the old days, when there were seven or eight of us sharing the holiday, the beautifully roasted turkey would take center-stage in the middle of the dining table waiting for the ceremonial (dramatic music playing in the background) carving. It was surrounded by the appropriate side dishes and condiments, with lovely serving forks and spoons of polished silver. Each person had at least two glasses included in their place-setting that rested on a lovely table linen, and their napkins were actually held, just so, in rings of appropriate autumnal materials.
We all sat together,
said “Grace” together,
and sang “We Gather Together” together!
We made Norman Rockwell proud!
Kiss those days good-bye!
