This antique platter has served me well over the years, but this year it is going to be empty, because we are having Thanksgiving at our sons and daughter-in-laws house; and the only contribution I'm making is my home made pate. It's time to the be the guest and I don't feel one iota guilty, after 54 years of cooking Thanksgiving dinners.
So on this special family holiday, we are going to play with the grandchildren, eat our daughter-in-laws fabulous food, drink our sons amazing wines, and enjoy the company of family and friends in a beautiful river front setting, in the warmth and glow of a wood fire and all the good feelings and sense of gratitude that Thanksgving brings.
Hope all are having a wonderful day of Thanksgving with family and friends. I know many are still dealing with loss this Thanksgiving and my thoughts and prayers goes out to all all with the hope that next year will bring them joy, peace and abundance.
