Appreciating Family Stories

Many American families will gather back around the Thanksgiving table this year after last year’s cancelled or altered plans. (My family shivered around a bonfire last Thanksgiving for as long as we could stand it, and I, for one, am thrilled to be back at the table. --Laura). Perhaps we will eat and drink as much as we can fit in our bellies. The children will have too many dinner rolls and not enough vegetables. We will talk about football games, health issues, and the weather. Then at some point, there will be a lull in the conversation.
