Day 242: Family and the table
In the USA Thanksgiving has come to represent a time when family and friends gather to share a meal and celebrate what they have. This year my sister Kathleen and her daughter, Sarah Louis and fiance Lejon were here to share dinner with Ron and his sister Joan. The table overflowed with food. Everyone indulged and stuffed down pecan pie and raspberry granola bars with ice cream for dessert.
I find it hard to express what I know and feel about the bounty of my life. Especially at a time when so many are seeking work and struggling to eke out a living.
Perhaps the best way to show appreciation is to care for things and to help others as best you can.
