Thanksgiving 2012

Thanksgiving:
a celebration.

Prepare the stage:
clean the house.
set the table.
decorate.

Create the feast:
roast the turkeys.
bake the cranberry breads.
blend the pumpkin mousse pie and top it with whipped cream.
prep the mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, green beans and onions.
fill the baskets with fruits and fresh breads.
craft the crudite.

Welcome the guests:
the playful children,
lovers new and old,
grandparents, aunts and uncles,
brothers, sisters and friends,
sons and daughters,
cousins and neighbors
to celebrate together.

Serve the meal,
Attend to the guests,
Hear the stories,
Catch-up with each other,
and save a dinner for yourself
to eat later
when you sit back,
and relish the feast and the memories
of a wonderful day.

Thanksgiving:
a gift to those you love.
