the lovely husband, who does things like let me sleep two hours past the girls' wakings;
the fresh air and strong earth that seasoned our meal tonight with their bounty;
the enthusiasm of our girls and sustained interests in little family projects like backyard gardens;
their nap times;
good friends who always look to include us in their plans;
my work, the girls' school, this home, this community we've found around us;
and these three turkeys. All three are fresh, two are free-range, and I nibbled on all of them today.
