A thanksgiving wish

Thanksgiving is the best family holiday. No gift-giving anxiety, no required religious observances, just being together, enjoying a meal and one another’s company.
Right now, Ella and Pippa are at a sleepover with their 4 first cousins, leaving Mr. Ella’s Dad to write this post.
The day hasn’t been about turkey, stuffing and football, although I’ve enjoyed a surfeit of all three. It’s about reconnecting with family — sharing memories, recalling the beloved departed, playing with toddlers, celebrating births and pregnancies, finding humor and love in stories and experiences we have in common.
While the older generations are engaged in recollecting past memories, the younger set is hanging out, creating new ones.
Here’s hoping that all of you are enjoying your own Thanksgiving with family, friends and loved ones, and that the memories you create and those you recall enrich you and sustain you throughout the coming year.
