Some years ago, when preparing a traditional Thanksgiving meal for the family got to be too much for her, my Mom passed the role of Thanksgiving hostess to me—a job I gladly accepted and have very much enjoyed. This year, however, with the DH and I in the midst of preparing for a move, our home was in no fit state for guests, so Mom got to act as hostess once again, inviting us to join her and Dad for what turned out to be a most enjoyable communal Thanksgiving dinner in the dining room of the retirement community where they now live.
