It’s Saturday afternoon … time to tackle Five Minute Friday. This is where we gather at Kate’s place (http://katemotaung.com/2015/11/26/five-minute-friday-table/) to share our thoughts for five minutes of uninterrupted writing on a specific prompt word. This week, the word is TABLE.
So, let’s set the timer and GO …
Today is actually my family’s Thanksgiving. For the first in many, many years, we’re gathered together at the table — in this case tables — all five of my children, spouses, 12 of my grandchildren, my great-granddaughter and friends.
As I write this, we’re waiting for the turkey(s) to finish cooking and all the fixins to come together. It’s a magical moment. And it make me appreciate this moment even more. This is what I’m thankful for. This moment. Surrounded by my family. Complete with laughter, sibling jabs and even a few hoots and hollers from the younguns, ranging from just over a year to 23.
Well, that’s it. One of the turkeys is making it’s way inside. It’s time to carve.
