Thanksgiving Day 2012 at the Dunphey Household

The gathering of kindred folk, by blood or by creed.
Consumption of varied dishes, familiar and welcomed.
Music around a piano with voices in unison, then in harmony.
Games in the basement on tables befitting.
Ladies lingering in laughter made warmer by fire's blaze.
Children playing, napping, and crying, consoled by loving aunts.

All for this: a Recollection of God's favor, mercy, and sacrificial love.
Thanksgiving forever due.
