  • Thanksgiving 2008. Childhood home in Wisconsin sold. Mom hosted Thanksgiving in new Colorado house. Greeted by pumpkin pies cooling in familiar pie dishes. Boon dog curled up by fire. Held hands and shared our thanks for many blessings while little brother circled with burning sage. Played fictionary after dinner just like always.
