School was closed.I took off the day from work and sewed in the studio with my daughter—fire crackling in the little Jøtul stove. Big grin on my face.
Last check we had a foot of snow, just in time for Thanksgiving today.
And today I feel thankful for so many things.
This year I feel special thanks for our little town and its many generous residents—many still suffering after the flood of nearly three months ago. I think of them today, and imagine that this is a poignant day for those who lost their homes, their crops, their livestock.
This blanket of white snow obscures some of the scarred landscape, and maybe that is a blessing on this day of thanks—to see the slate wiped clean. And look around the table at friends, family and neighbors. We’re all here and we’re together. And that is a lot to be grateful for.
