Good family, good food, giving thanks at the table while holding hands with the person next to you…this means Thanksgiving to me.
The table is decorated to welcome each guest.
There is so much food that it’s laid out buffet style.
The dishes were:
Turkey, baked spiral ham, cornbread dressing, green bean casserole, broccoli with cheese, macaroni and cheese, etc., etc., etc….with cranberry sauce.
With one spoonful of each dish, you had a full plate. It was delicious.
But what was more impressive was the friendship and harmony in the group. We dined out in the woods, at a camp that my son has. There were him, his wife, two sons, one with a girlfriend and a daughter. His and her parents, his two brothers, and a nephew.
Different generations, yet the table conversation was exciting…listening to the tales from different people was heartwarming.
What small town America is really about. Family.
I’m thankful that every day I have my family are around me. I’m truly blessed.
May your holiday season be blessed as well.
