thanksgiving

I started teaching our son “Over the River and Through the Woods,” which is considered a Thanksgiving song, isn’t it? It brought back memories of teaching the song to my Mongolian students. For each of the three Thanksgivings I was there, I also had the sophomores put on a short play that I’d written, with lead roles for Squanto and William Bradford. I’d like to think some of them still remember the story of the first Thanksgiving because of that play. And this year, as the weather is keeping us from traveling “home,” may I remember that Thanksgiving is about the right heart attitude, which is possible regardless of where or with how few people I celebrate the holiday.
