Mishmash: What I Love About Thanksgiving

A delightful mishmash of plates, place mats, eating utensils, glasses, chairs, old recipes and new guests. It’s what I love about Thanksgiving. Have a seat!

Nothing fancy. Nothing matching. A rented table and a mishmash of plates, place mats, glasses, silverware, plastic ware, paper napkins, candles and a fire in the fireplace. And, of course, a volunteer in the background (in this case my son-in-law) to slice the turkey. All of this is what I love so much about Thanksgiving. My granddaughter, Lily, 8, had a special request: “Let’s go around the table and say what we’re grateful for this year.” We did just that. And we were all grateful for each other. For family. For friends. Precious. The best. Hope your Thanksgiving was as nice a mishmash as ours was.
