My brothers and sisters love talking about the times my father would fix up the pool table and put chairs around it so everyone could fit at the table. My family talks about the old days when my sister in law would host the dinner. Then they would talk about how she left the area I became the host for the holiday meals. I would hear stories of new business ideas or new jobs.
Then there was the year I really did have a full house, about 28 people. As I was counting the people and plates I noticed this young girl. I asked who are you and she looked petrified as she said, I was invited by Tom. Great you will need to help with setting up one more place setting; there is always room for another. She told us stories of her family and how they had large groups, she really had a good time and so did we hearing her stories of her family thanksgivings.
Everyone has a story allow them to share and enjoy the time together.
Much joy and love to you and yours
