The Door to Thanksgiving

The door to Thanksgiving leads to hope that the world will be well fed, to appreciation for the family members we love to excitement that we will be seeing our cousins to memories of other Thanksgivings and people who are gone now. The door to Thanksgiving leads to land of love and appreciation A valley where sweet potatoes gladly lay down their lives And are sprinkled generously with butter and brown sugar topped with marshmallows like grandma used to make The door to Thanksgiving leads to the belief there will be future Thanksgivings to the memory of the laughter of our babies when they were toddlers to a long wonderful afternoon nap, where we are carefree Thrilled that we once again were able to open the door to Thanksgiving

I had the largest sweet potato in my life with all of the above at my daughter's house on Thanksgiving this year. She brought out the good stuff and let me put my own toppings on it. It filled half of my plate.
