Thanksgiving starts each for the cook and for many travelers. Some have the family morning tradition of watching the Macy’s parade before the guest arrive.
The arrivals eventually descend on the host’s domain, and the feeding frenzy begins with appetizers – which happens to flow directly into the annual feast.
Everybody ate a lot and the many dishes, utensils, pots, pans, and glasses eventually cleaned and returned to their rightful place. Fortunately, the second feeding of the day uses disposable plates.
As the day nears an end, the adrenalin is starting to flow in crazies wanting to storm the retail Bastille for the Black Friday specials. On the other hand, some of us still want the calm of the holiday’s intent.
In Thanksgiving spirit, our handbell choir played this tune at Wednesday evening’s service. Enjoy.
