this thanksgiving,
let's all hold those we love
just a little tighter.

(more to come kay family!)

we'll be giving thanks around a smaller table this year.
we have our dear friend david coming for a visit.

i'm always amazed by how friends can feel like adopted family
when you live so far from your own.

but this christmas, we'll be visiting our family!
we're all looking forward to that.

in the midst of digital connections,
i'm thankful for the actual physical presence
we can have with one another.

coffee with a friend.
a quick hug in passing.
a warm meal shared.
(especially the kind that has turkey and gravy.)

i'm hoping you all are surrounded by friends and family this thanksgiving.
and that you have many things to give thanks for.

i'd love it if you'd share one thing here...
being thankful can be contagious.
and so refreshing in the midst of all the complaining in the world.

happy thanksgiving to all!!
