thanksgiving gratitude

I’ve been reflecting on my recent Thanksgiving trip to Texas. What strikes me most is the Gratitude I feel….

~ for my son and daughter-in-law who met us in person at the airport, and then took us to a local, legendary place for burgers;

~ for the welcome to their home, and all the preparations made for our visit;

~ for my grandson who drove me to Starbucks every morning, where we shared coffee, chai, and conversation;

~ for my granddaughter who shared stories with me about her work and play, and introduced me to her boy friend ;

~ for bow ties and barbecue;

~ for the annual pumpkin roll;

~ for the delight in observing the feeding of geese and duck visitors;

~ for gathering around the table to enjoy the bounty of Thanksgiving;

~ for an unexpected visit with my best friend at the airport as both of us were traveling home;

Indeed. Amen.
