Story prompt: My favorite memory of being on or near the river is…

Every Thanksgiving, my dad, my brother, and I walk from his Westover Hills home to the Nickel Bridge.

Every year we stand in the bridge and just appreciate the beauty and bring in all the most positive things that have kept us going during that year.

It’s a wonderful opportunity for us to not only smile at nature but to also remember that things are okay and they’ll continue to be okay.
