If you are a regular to this little space, then you already know that I am passionate about the table. The table and I go way back. Way back to when my shoes were purple with velcro fasteners and my hair was held back with those fuzzy yarn ribbons. Remember those? Cindy Brady and I had several things in common. The brothers, the name, those yarn hair ribbons and the exaggerated poochy lip. Even then, I loved being in my chair, on a copy of the Yellow Pages, in my spot at my parents table.
My head is pretty jam-packed with memories of that table and of others. About 18 months ago, I felt the push to begin writing them down. I’ve written and written but I have kept it mostly to myself because, well– it’s scary and it’s special and I hope that at some point they will be a book. I’m dreaming up a food and table memoir, of what it really means to feast on life and what really fills us. At this point, the road to that end is winding and unknown and I don’t want to keep it all squirreled away for someday. Therefore I’m sharing a bit with you today.
My hope is that you will print this out and frame it– put it up in your house throughout the Christmas season. I hope you will look at it when you burn the cookies and forget the crucial ingredient to that dinner party you’re having. When the tea isn’t sweet enough and you feel like your table isn’t fancy enough– remember what we know to be true.

May we all remember this Christmas and every day after that living life together is a true grace gift, and it is one we desperately crave– not in spite of, but alongside our humanity.
