    This time of year we sometimes find ourselves glancing "over the fence" at the family celebrations of our friends and neighbors with a wistful sigh. Its so much easier to look through a window and imagine the Norman Rockwell painting when we don't see the holiday ideal in our own family. Well you know what? I wasn't there but I can guarantee you that scene in the painting was LOUD. I can also guarantee you some of those folks drove hours to be there, bickering all the way. And some complained of how the turkey was cooked, or that so-and-so's wife had on too much lipstick (having no idea that complaining was a surer sign of their own character). But at that moment in the painting those folks from Mr. Rockwell's mind clicked. They were a family gathered around a dinner table to give thanks. And in that moment, no matter the imperfections and faults, they became beautiful. And the imaginary photo was snapped. That was the take away. It'll be there for your family, too. All you gotta do is shift the focus away from the neighbor's picture window so you can see the art surrounding you. You may have turkey with all the trimmings, but it just won't taste right unless you bring a thankful heart. -Christy Jordan
