Pumpkin pie. And yes, I made it myself.

Happy Thanksgiving, Americans!

I hope everyone has had a chance to be with family and/or friends, to eat too much, and to fall asleep on the couch. And above all, I hope everyone is happy.

Of course, not everyone can be with family, not everyone has enough to eat, and not everyone has a home, much less a couch, which makes the falling asleep part hard. Thanksgiving is all about feeling grateful for our own good fortune, however much or little we might enjoy; but the way I see it, part of feeling grateful is also feeling obligated to extend our good fortune to others. So this Thanksgiving, if you can afford it, share your meal — even if it’s just your leftovers — with someone who needs a friend; send some food to someone who could use a little more to eat; support an organization that provides shelter for those who need a place to stay. (This year, we donated to an organization that provides meals for a senior center, which is good any time of year.) And if you’re on the receiving end of any of that, share a smile with your new friends.
