A Place in your heart

Time to come home1

“You think you’re lost but that’s not true, you simply lived a dream or two. You’ve traveled all this way to find, you never left your home behind.”

I have this picture in my mind of how our own Thanksgiving will go down this week.

An eclectic, colorful array of my family’s very best recipes, all non-traditional by American standards. Instead of a turkey, a nice side of roasted kalua pork with steamed cabbage. A great big platter of pancit canton, lumpia shanghai a la carte, steamed rice instead of the usual mountains of mashed taters, leche flan to satisfy your sweet tooth and lots and lots of Hawaiian punch.

The holidays around my neck of the woods are hardly a picture of elegance. There are no silvery garlands lining my window panes, no crystal ornaments adorning boughs of evergreen and there are no candlelit centerpieces to catch the eye.

Rather we set out chairs everywhere which way we can find and invite whomsoever will. Family, friends, even the gal who checked you out at the corner drug store, all are welcomed. I ne’er hear any complaints about the lack of elegance as dinner is served on our very best Chinet. And nary a peep of dissatisfaction with the cooking either!

The picture in my mind resounds with the utmost love and camaraderie. It is a hard lesson to learn, when we can remember a table setting and color theme, rather than the friendships and connections we make during these times of togetherness.

And so I take advantage of this line of thought to tell you, my fellow lurker/reader, that when you’re ready to finally make your way in this great big world, don’t forget to take home with you. It’ll keep you grounded and it’ll keep you as steady as the beating of your heart.
