Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
Thank you for reading this ramble of mine and for commenting and sharing wine knowledge and for making me laugh and think and for just taking the time to be kind. You may not know it but God has used you for good in my life and for this I’m grateful.
I love Thanksgiving. Unlike Christmas, with the pressure to produce the perfect gifts, or mail a magnificent family Christmas card photo, Thanksgiving gives me an intentional opportunity to reflect on life and give thanks to God, family, friends, even strangers for impacting me in so many valuable ways.
Praise the Lord!
Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good,
for his steadfast love endures forever! Psalm 106:1
However you celebrate this year, I pray your day is filled with lots of laughter and good cheer.
And on that note, for those of you like me who stress over the holiday details, here’s a bit of advice from one of my favorite party hosts, Julia Child:
On cooking mistakes: “Always remember: If you’re alone in the kitchen and you drop the (turkey), you can always just pick it up. Who’s going to know?”
Dinner conversation: “Just speak very loudly and quickly, and state your position with utter conviction, as the French do, and you’ll have a marvelous time!”
In general: “With enough butter, anything is good.”
