Sunday is my birthday,
and we'll be heading out to my family's house
to celebrate an early Thanksgiving together
(we are spending Thanksgiving Day
with my husband's family).
I am so looking forward to it all.

I know that this is not the case for everyone,
but I love this season of the year so much
because it holds my memories
of other golden holiday times
like a cup holds water.

I sip from it and taste last year,
and the year before that,
and each taste adds richness
to this year's cup.

Happy Thanksgiving!
