The Balm of Abundance

The Standifer gathering for Thanksgiving today will be in Leesburg, FL.  There will be a new celebrant his year–Connie Kline, my new romantic interest.  We will leave from Saint Petersburg about 9:30 am for the 2 hour trip.  Going with us will be my long-time and trusted friend Angelo Lundy.  We will be taking two pies (sweet potato and tropical cheesecake) and a smoked pork chop casserole.  

We will be celebrating amidst a balm of abundance.  Humanity is susceptible to rude importunities of scarcity and pain. The abundance of family and friends (and food) serves as a balm to assuage the sterner and less happy aspects of life.

I wish you this day fields ripe for harvest and overflowing with balms of abundance.
