I hope you find yourself in the company of people you like today, even if they sometimes make you crazy; I hope you find yourself at a bountiful table!
I hope you enjoy a delicious Pinot Noir with your turkey – or sweet tea, if that’s your pleasure. I hope the marshmallows on your sweet potato casserole are perfectly puffed and browned.
I hope the perfect is not the enemy of the good today.
I hope you’ve saved a seat at the table for the most generous guest of the day – patience.
I hope you can greet the sorrows and regrets that come knocking at the door and say – hello, there is even room for you here. I can live with you.
I hope happiness slips in the side door when no one is looking.
The only guest I hope you turn away is the lean spirit of bitterness.
I hope you ask for what you need today, whether that is help in the kitchen or more kindness in your home.
I hope you get to watch that football game. Or take that nap.
I hope that gratitude comes quietly and finds you where you are.
I hope that you feel love – and loved – today.
