This year was the best Thanksgiving yet. By my mother's side in the kitchen, I chopped, peeled and diced. I ran along craggy cliffs, wrote what was on my heart and knit for as long as I wanted. I ironed, folded and washed. I'm a girl who enjoys being busy with tasks. With the exception of lying down with a good book, I don't like sitting still for long.
Dinner was a small affair for just the four of us, but we made it special. We donned pajamas for our feast and sat down with full plates. After our tummies could take no more, we settled back into the living room couch with the fire crackling before us. It was a beautiful evening to cap off a wonderful day.
