We had to borrow two chairs, six spoons, four forks and two dinner knives in order to gather twelve around the table. Where does all of the silverware go?! I knew it would be snug... but I also knew it would be lovely. Family, and friends who might as well be family, side by side... giving thanks and enjoying each other. Turkey and all the fixings... including the parade that always makes me cry.
We chat on into the evening... and end with candle light and conversation on the lanai... while the kids tackle games on the Wii.
My list of thankful runs 'round in my head... and I know it is not just for this day.
