Anne Lamott writes: as a child she never said grace at her family’s table, but was drawn to her friends’ homes where people paused and recalled blessings before scarfing down the vittles.
Thanksgiving is a holiday for every American, no matter their religion – or lack of it – their heritage. We bring ourselves as we are to the table of everyone. We eat, we laugh, we remember and we give thanks for all that has been good.
We are grateful for each other – and the freedom to love as we like, worship as we want and celebrate our blessings. And that is grace. Happy Thanksgiving.
