Enough snow had fallen so Thanksgiving felt festive, but not so much so anyone had to worry about getting from here to there.
I was looking forward to going around the table and sharing with everyone all the things for which I am thankful.
How lucky I felt: to be there – all of us all together – in a warm, cozy home where there is always a comfortable place to sit and a plate of delicious food to eat.
I wanted everyone to know that it’s true what your grandma said: your health really is everything;
That being home isn’t a place, it’s a feeling.
It’s a green toothbrush on the bathroom sink. It’s his bowl left on the kitchen table. It’s the sound of the garage door going up at the end of the day. It’s warm zucchini bread cooling on the countertop, the cat lying in that spot on the landing, the laundry twirling in sloppy circles.
If there’s one thing we share – no matter our race, income, religion or beliefs – it’s that we all want a place to call home, a place filled with love.
