As we sat down to our tempting Thanksgiving meal, Lane spoke up. "Don't anybody get started yet." She reached over and took Amanda's hand. "I want to say a kinda prayer, I guess."
Lane has a spiritual side? Who knew.
Because we didn't know what else to do, exactly, the rest of us joined hands too.
Lane said, "Just want to say thanks to the Goddess, for helping me find my way to this table, where every one of us sits by choice. Not bound by law, or blood, or obligation. Bound by affection, love, and honest to Goddess attraction." Then she beamed her big beautiful smile at each one of us.
Amanda said, "Amen."
Starr Ann said, "Amen."
Jodie said, "Amen."
Celia Susan said, "Amen."
I said, "Amen."
Happy Thanksgiving to anyone who happens to find their way here to the Happy Hands Ranch today.
