My turkey bowl. It’s made of white milk glass—a Martha Stewart creation. It’s shaped as a turkey. The head comes off and in goes the homemade cranberry sauce.
I bought it when times were good. I had a home I loved, and a family I nurtured. Keeping house and family was my passion, and my job.
Every November first, I pulled the turkey bowl from the pantry and placed it in the middle of our dining room table. There it sat until Thanksgiving.
This November first, it did not make it to the table. In fact I completely forgot about it until I saw it in the pantry. I then picked it up and wrapped it in paper.
