Sometimes, I feel a little sorry for Thanksgiving, a holiday that can get lost in the shuffle of Black Friday sales and the coming of the Christmas season.  But a well-laid meal with loved ones and time for gratitude and thankfulness is a tradition worth enjoying.  In my mind, Thanksgiving is a very nice way to pause and renew for the busy weeks that lie ahead.

When we return to school on Monday, it will be a quick-moving three weeks of wrestling practice, school events, and children getting increasingly excited about the coming of Winter holidays and two weeks off from school.  Quiet in advance of that frenzy is richly rewarding.  I love all of the planning and cooking that goes into Thanksgiving, a holiday that I appreciate more and more as the years pass. Here’s to a reminder to appreciate our blessings and to give thanks for them.

Happy Thanksgiving, y’all!
