The flock of turkeys is complete, but a bit mauled by the cat. The ornaments for the month of November represent the only holiday in the United States that does not have a religious tie to the European immigrants who largely populated this country. It is a celebration of the harvest. A giving of thanks for enough food to survive the winter and get into spring far enough for the food supply to return. It is in large part about gratitude.
I am grateful for the family I have and that I have enough. I am grateful that I have enough to share with another family and hope another family is open to allowing my family to share this year long journey of giving.
The final items will be the tree topper, the tree skirt, and the tree itself. We are looking forward to the culmination of the journey as much as we have the journey itself.
