A Holiday Made Holy by Contradictory Urges and Satisfactions

Sophie, my youngest niece, hand colored Pilgrims and Native American name tags for everyone with bold hues. I was drafted to read a Psalm from my mother's iPad mini. And then we all joined hands and sang the doxology in 3 to 6 part harmony (depending on the moment). The second wave of grandchildren are still young enough that the entire dinner feels loud, chaotic, and hilarious. Once the cousins leave the table it's suddenly quiet. It's a holiday full of contradictions, improvisations, unlikely juxtaposition. But it's been nice so far. #thanksgiving2015 #family
