Giving Thanks


I have finished my cooking for today. The pumpkin pie and berry pie are cooling on the counter. The stuffing, which will not be stuffed in the bird, is chilling in the refrigerator. The yams are baked and prepped and ready for orange sauce tomorrow. The cranberry sauce is cooling in a pretty bowl. 

Jake will join us and he is bringing a concoction of root vegetables. He experiments with produce he gets in his fresh from the farm box, delivered twice a month. 

We will roast a small turkey breast, trying not to miss the smoky turkey and gravy from our traditional BBQ smoked bird. Maybe for Christmas?

We will be grateful for each other, for our good health, for the company of our son, for plentiful food on the table , and a warm and secure home. 

Tom and I have worked hard for what we have but we know that it takes more than hard work. We had opportunity, good parents, and good fortune. So many were not so fortunate. My heart goes out to those who are struggling.

Stay well, stay warm, stay loved and loving.
