Thankful for Thanksgiving

I thought of President Kennedy this Thanksgiving. "The torch has been passed to a new generation..." and all that.

My neice's boyfriend (eagle scout and all around good kid) volunteered for "Nana duty"--carting the 78 year old twins to the festivities. It brought back memories of when my own dh was in the "courting" stage and trying to do things for my parents when the opportunity presented itself.

When the after dinner guitars came out, it was my son and my sister's step-daughter who entertained us, instead of my husband. We all felt promoted to a higher rung. It is very comforting to know that there is such an able generation coming up after us. I have always had high hopes for them and this cements my faith in their ability.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
