Magical Wishes

Today is one of those days you dare to hope for....the one where you make a wish and it comes true.  It was the day that all the stars aligned and joy was the end result.

  • Turkey went in and cooked itself to perfection.
  • Vegetables behaved and came out at the same time as the turkey.
  • Christmas crafts were bought and young children were entertained and thankful.
  • The wine was the perfect compliment to the meal.
  • An ex-husband came and all the words around the table were kind and carried no ill will.
  • The planning and execution of the meal was a ballet of two women...The mother and the oldest daughter doing a dance of unspoken steps and timeless rrhythm. No wasted movement between them.
  • Men, grateful for full bellies, taking over the kitchen duties of cleaning and storing leftover food.
Today was magical with its promise of hope and its ending of love and peacce.  Thanksgiving meals have been carried out from start to finish by one person for so long that I had forgotten what a gift it is to carry it with someone.  I believe it made the food made me better!

Happy early Thanksgiving

  1. Hey there, I found you via the NaBloPoMo blogroll.

    I love it when turkeys cook themselves. :) especially to perfection!

    As part of NaBloPoMo I try to comment on as many participating blogs as I can, and I also add participating blogs to my feed reader.

    So I’m just dropping by to let you know I’ve added your blog to my feedreader, I’m reading you loud and clear, I have a link up going at my place so my readers can find participating blogs which you are more than welcome to add your blog link to.

    Looking forward to seeing your posts. You may see me drop by again during November, but it might be December before I finish my first drop by to blogs if I don't get faster at leaving comments. :)

    Happy NaBloPoMo to you!
