Gathering Around the Table

I've heard that it takes a year to adjust to moving. 
That means that it's gonna take two years 
since this is our second move in two years. 

I'm not complaining, really I'm not. 
I'm beyond grateful...
just tired.

I had hoped to give you a patriotic tablescape
but it just ain't happening this year. 

What better place to gather than around the table.
I've been prayed for around the family table,
I've seen others prayed for, 
and I've prayed for a few around mine.

Those are some of my best memories.

A cotton stalk and canning jars, 
I think that's very patriotic.
It's what's on my table tonight.

Say a prayer for me, will you?
The doc has decided due to TN regulations 
that I need a medication change. 
I did not go to sleep before 4am and I 
have been a nervous wreck all day. 
Now, my eye is twitching so I must stop.

This is when I wish I'd never gotten a diagnosis.
I may have been in an institution, but 
I feel like I'm in prison now anyway. 

I'm teasing. 
I'm laughing about it. 
Honestly, it's something that I've able to joke about. 
Shoot! I'm certifiable!

I guess there will be a lot of gatherings this weekend. 
Enjoy your table.
