Well, it's all over and the dishes washed. A peaceful moment before bed for me to reflect on the day.
It's been an interesting one... but overall really nice. :)
I was thinking yesterday, when I was doing my last minute grocery shopping that there is something kind of profound about these shared experiences. Here I am in the store, buying the same stuff as everyone else to cook essentially the same meal on the same day. And this is happening all over the country. An interesting communal feeling in a world that is sometimes sadly lacking in communal feeling. I liked it.
And then, tonight, I was thinking about all the past thanksgivings. When I was a kid, sharing a meal cooked by my grandma, with all my cousins there and my mom and grandparents. Then later, meals shared with friends, family again, my husband (who is now my family and has been for 16 years). And that made me feel almost like I am sharing the day with my past self (does that make sense?!)
I don't really have a point here, just musing on some thoughts on the day. It has been a good one and I know we'll all have many more. And that's kind of special.
