That Night Of The Year

Last night was one of the best nights of the year.
I just oozed around the restaurant in a glob of love and happiness.
All my babies were there. All my grandbabies.

Boppy got to hold the baby for an hour, at least. Owen was incredibly sartorial. 
Old, old, old friends playing the songs that make us weep and make our feet dance.

Music made, quite frankly, with and from love. 

Holding people close, catching up, all of it, all of it. 
Watching Jessie holding her baby and swaying to songs played by people I've known since long, long before she herself was born. Telling Owen about the musicians, introducing him to people, watching him get to know my brother. Seeing my children so beautiful. 

A dream that comes once every year. 

And this morning, my brother and Mr. Moon, getting a fire ready to smoke the venison. Onions and celery on the stove. 

Happy Thanksgiving. 
No matter what else happens, it's already been perfect. 

Love...Ms. Moon


  1. Oh, Wow. I don't know what to say, other than I can feel deep in the heart of me how incredibly special this is.

    Owen is a stylish man, there is no question.

    I hope you have a sweet and peaceful weekend!

  2. May this moment of pure grace continue. How safe August looks in your man's arms.

  3. The photo of baby August with Mr. Moon is divine. May you all continue to have a holiday full of love and peace! Happy Thanksgiving.

  4. You have many blessings, Ms. Moon! I do, too, and am sending my love and hugs to my dear daughter (OK, she's my step daughter, but after 30 years we don't use the 'step' part), who is experiencing her first Thanksgiving without her mama. I remember how difficult that is, and while I'll be with cousins in Florida, my heart will be with her. Let us all be thankful!

  5. I am happy that you have had a wonderful time connecting with loved ones .

  6. Owen's got the Leonard Cohen thing going there. :-)

  7. Happiest day, Lady Moon. You are swaddled in love.

  8. My favorite holiday. Just about relaxing with food and a lot of love.


Tell me, sweeties. Tell me what you think.
