Spending some time this day after Thanksgiving in solitude,
reflecting on the blessings of the holiday-
a houseful of friends sharing stories
daughters in aprons each making 'their special dish'
table filled with delicious food
family and friends gathered around the table
a surprise visit from grandpa
laughter over a game of Apples to Apples
texts and calls from sweet friends
And now, a quiet house, a book, a cup of tea, a slice of pumpkin pie ...
Giving thanks today for a peaceful, blessed Thanksgiving.
Tomorrow we begin preparing for Christmas!
