Thankful


My family started a new Thanksgiving tradition in 2003. Before dessert, we lay out a special tablecloth and a handful of permanent markers. Everyone present must write something on the cloth indicating the things for which they're thankful that year. Thanksgiving guests who are not direct family members are not exempt. It's been neat to watch the tablecloth, four years on, slowly become more and more covered with writing.

4 years already?? That first year was the year mom and I came down, right? I remember reading it but I don't remember signing...

Actually, you & madre were here in 2004, and Aunt Teresa et al started it the year before that. You did sign it though; if you look at the larger version you can see what you wrote.
