I will have thirty-nine people in my house today. I've been preparing all week. My foot hurts and I think I'm getting viral conjunctivitis.
But it's going to be a great day, because most of the family will be here. The little cousins will dress up in the costumes we keep in a trunk downstairs, and bounce on the beds. There will funny stories from the past and present. We will eat too much.
We'll be grateful for the time together, and miss the sisters and brothers and parents that aren't with us.
I wish you love and peace, and the gift of family and friends on this day of thanksgiving.
