It’s time, right?
To get on the road with the thawing turkey in the backseat,
the Delia’s tamales for Saturday’s Aggie game in tow,
the sacks and sacks of groceries stuck in every nook and cranny,
the crate of Christmas decorations (found in the Christmas closet) it is time to share with my daughters for their homes,
and the mantra ‘I think I can, I think I can ,I think I can’, when I think about facing the anxiety of making giblet gravy tomorrow.
A very dear friend said to me recently, when I was worrying about how to handle challenges in my life,
”It’s all about the relationship Laura. Protect that and everything will be OK.”
So 7 hours laughing in the truck and talking about football with my husband and not worrying about the future is about the relationship,
and supper last night at Luby’s with my father because he will be celebrating Thanksgiving with my brother’s family is about the relationship,
and remembering to ask myself whose standard it is ,when feeling aggravated or irritable is about protecting my relationships at large.
Have a blessed Thanksgiving,
