I love Thanksgiving because it's about people.
Without the pressure of gift-giving and receiving, without a focus on a particular event, like a birthday or an anniversary, without a "reason" except just the joy of being together, sharing time and a meal.
Okay, It's the Food, Too
I've got to admit that turkey, dressing, and coconut creme pie are pretty high up on the list of reasons that I love Thanksgiving.
But it's not
just the food. It's the chance to set a beautiful table, to welcome people that you care about into your home (or be welcomed into theirs) and to acknowledge that, while our world has many problems, it holds many blessings.
