In my life, I have many things for which to be thankful.
However today I'm just thankful to have crawled out of my warm bed early enough to shove the turkey in the oven, chop most of the vegetables and arrange the table for ten with my Grandmother's china and my Great-Aunt's silverware.
I would have had a glass of wine to start the day off with a bang (it is 9:00 a.m.), but I'm waiting until 11:00 to imbibe. That's when The Brunette shows up with the booze.
What I love most about Thanksgiving, though, is this: my family celebrates this particular holiday together, every year, without variation. It's something I count on and it's something I cherish.
Readers, happy Thanksgiving to you and your families.
