Chap visits the gravesite of his beloved wife just before Thanksgiving. Having turned down an invitation from his daughter, Laura, to spend Thanksgiving with her family, Chap is determined to make a feast like his wife used to; however, upon climbing into the attic to retrieve a serving dish, he falls and hits his head. His estranged foster daughter, Jessica, finds him and brings to the hospital where the doctors advise that Chap not be left alone until his concussion heals. Furious at being treated like an invalid, Chap balks at every attempt of his foster daughter to help, but his granddaughter is eager to bond with her grandpa. Chap resists her attempts to forge a relationship but is eventually won over as the two read Chap's wife's old Bible together. When Laura discovers that Jessica is taking care of him, she worries that Jessica is only after Chap's will and might be planning to create a suspicious accident to eliminate Chap, but her fears are dispelled and Chap breaks the news that he wants to officially adopt Jessica and help her raise the granddaughter.
