The key to my happiness:
a family that goes above and beyond.
They don't just send a few emails,
they make me a part of daily life.
this morning I awoke to a grand feast
and a seat at the Thanksgiving table.
They scooped me a big plate,
we told family stories,
played practical jokes
- in short -
we were a family.
It didn't matter that all I actually consumed was my morning coffee.
The time with my family was the nourishment I need.
