Happily, Thanksgiving season is here. It’s a holiday about looking back over the year and giving thanks, and gathering for a meal that celebrates what we are fortunate to have.
It’s hard to think about Thanksgiving without the Thanksgiving table. As you might expect, being a mediator makes me particularly appreciative of tables. (If you’d like to read my musing on how integral they are, click here.)
As I look back on the year, I recall a lot marked by coming together at tables. There were good times, important times, purposes achieved and all kinds of things shared across them. I also remember many people I was joined by including some for the first time, and one for the last. So, backdrops they may be, let’s appreciate tables as a means for bringing about memorable times and many blessings.
Happy Thanksgiving! Enjoy celebrating all the bounties your year has provided, and all that has made them possible.
