Seating arrangements

Who hasn't been to a Thanksgiving Dinner where the seating is intricately planned?

Once or twice I remember having to wear name tags, too.

Who sits where?

But you never need reminders to remember who isn't there.

Sometimes you have your best conversations with them, too, in a quiet spot in the corner by phone or in the silence of your thoughts at the table before the meal begins.

Our Thanksgiving bounty is much bigger than adding up the chairs.
