Five Minute Friday — Table

It’s Saturday afternoon … time to tackle Five Minute Friday. This is where we gather at Kate’s place ( 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.

FamilyIt’s moments like these I live for. And there is always room at the table for family and friends … STOP

Well, that’s it. One of the turkeys is making it’s way inside. It’s time to carve.

    Nice picture and blessed family. I love this thought by Lee Strobel. How true. We cannot long for more faith without patiently enduring while it grows.

    What a wonderful family picture! I agree, no matter how many, there is always room for more at the table 🙂


  4. Such a blessing to have such a big family gathering at your table. It’s been a long time since we have had those.
