Torts & Tots

Motherhood. Lawyer-dom. And maybe a few nice recipes.

Thankful for Thanksgiving.

We spent this Thanksgiving how I suspect many of you did – surrounded by family and food.  This Thanksgiving, I am thankful for all the beauty to be found in the very usual and normal things that surround us – the tiniest laughter of our tiniest daughter as she bear hugs her grandparents’ legs, the less tiny laughter of AJS and her cousin as they are overcome with a special exuberance reserved for the holidays, the hum of conversation between family members, the warmth of being in the company of people who are sincerely happy to be all together in one spot, and the lull in conversation when we all appreciatively dig into plates piled high.  My favorite Thanksgiving delicacy is stuffing with a layer of green beans on top.  Claire appreciated the green bean casserole, and Avery dug the mashed potatoes.  This year, I think Avery was thankful for time spent with her cousin Katee and, of course, chasing chickens.  Claire seemed to be especially thankful for time with her grandparents.  As you can see, there is nothing particularly unique about my “Thankful For” list.  But there is something unique about, just for a second, all coming together and being grateful for each other and our blessings.
