Thanksgiving 2012: Today is Thanksgiving and my family and I took a long drive across Michigan to spend the day with my husband’s brother and his family. My silver lining today was the sight of a small group of turkeys on the side of the road during ride. They didn’t look stately crossing the road. There were no big toms. But they were fit, brown and gray, perfectly representing November. Flocked up as they were, maybe they are the grown siblings from spring’s newness, a family together on Thanksgiving.
