In years past, I have spent an enormous amount of time ironing tables clothes and napkins and setting an elaborate Thanksgiving table. I buy the candles, even set them in the holders and place them around the table. Somehow, I forget to light them. But I am not sure anyone noticed. There was plenty of conversation and laughter and our table decor was fun. We covered the tables with brown paper and set out colored pencils. I was happy to see the little drawings as I cleared away the dirty dishes.
I am celebrating and embracing a return to simple and a focus on what is most important this season.
Visit Ruth and find something to celebrate this weekend.
