I like to roast it long and sjow, wr'apped in a butter-dipped cheese cloth and resting in an unobvered'.nan. I always stew a little bit along with the, roasting. Will the bird be tender? Will therft be enough for everyone with lots left over? come out .nice ah'd brown? .The kids love Thanksgiving morning and they help .-with the dinner preparations.. ./Sometimes it takes only a couple more hours to get ready thari-it would if they didn't help me. . We' get out the lace tablecloth, move the table fo the living room and wipe the dust off the good china. Pretty soon (he grandparents arrive and there's just the' gravy to make and the potatoes to mash and we can proceed with the festivities. * * • On the first Thanksgiving there were many vacant chairs in- the family circle for the first year in the new' world was a rugged one. Grandparents, fathers, mothers, arid children died. Scarcely a family" was left untouched and the gratitude at the first Thanksgiving was tempered by the sadness in the hearts. As I look around our Thanksgiving table at tjpe children, fat and sassy, at the grandparents, active and enjoying life and at Father prt'sidina over the gathering, I think ho\v grateful I am that those nearest and dearest to me can be with us for Thanksgiving. - ' » * » We bow pur heads while one of the children takes his turn at asking the. blessing. It's a short prayer; it' doesn't postpone the mprrjent Q f eating an instant longer fhan necessary. And it doesn't begin to cover all the things tor which we are truly grateful. "Thank You Lord, for everything", ends the prayer we sometimes use. We hope that it ^wiil somehow convey our Thanksgiving for the bounty of flis blessings. : * * * Wednesday evening.
