Thanksgiving Day in Cypress, TX
The day started with picking up Jordan at the airport. We haven't seen her since the middle of August and although we talk almost daily, it was so good to hug her and be in her presence.
Then we began the setting of the table and the last hours of food preparation for the meal we were sharing with my sister, Catha, and her family. We blessed the food, ate the food, then went around the table and talked about what we were most thankful for. Noone ever wants to go first.....but everyone ends up being glad they could say out loud the things that usually go unsaid. Everyone laughed....and some of us even got close to tearing up. We all left the table just miserable from being way too stuffed. Some football, a fire in the firepit on the deck, and some good conversation later, we had enough room for dessert.
