As we sat around a laden table this Thanksgiving, enjoying not only delicious food and pleasant company but also the efforts to make the feast lovely and meaningful, we were reminded of an editor’s letter that Debra wrote years ago when she was editor of Creative Home magazine. The heartfelt essay reminded us of how much we owe to the ladies who showed us that even a humble life can be filled with beauty.

That letter continues to resonate with us and, we’re told, with our colleagues, so in the spirit of thanks to mothers and grandmothers, sisters and aunts, we’re presenting it to you here. Have a wonderful holiday weekend.
