Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! This year, I have so much to be thankful for: our marriage, our new home, my incredible family and friends. 2017 has been a year of change and excitement, and I feel such gratitude for the generosity of spirit that so many people around me have shown. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays, because it's centered around gratitude, and food, and family, and feels in that way a bit apart from capitalism and commercialism.

Today is only the second Thanksgiving I've spent away from my parents (the other was while I was studying abroad), and although I miss them, I'm so thrilled with the new traditions I'm starting and the ones I'm maintaining. I hope today is filled with all good things for you!

(And, if you're looking for a poem or prayer to read at your Thanksgiving table tonight, I'm rather partial to the words of this hymn.)
