Thanksgiving Thoughts

Thanksgiving has long been a time to give thanks for a good harvest. It has been celebrated in times of plenty and times of need. Often extended families gather at the matriarch's house.

Today there are so many options on how to celebrate the day. In my family, the tradition has changed from going to grandmother's house, to going to mother's house, to going to a restaurant, and this year - going to my sister's house in Florida for a combination Thanksgiving/Family reunion. My sister has stated that this day is beginning to have the feeling of a flash mob as I think she is now beyond 30 to feed and sleep. Relatives are coming from as far away as Washington state and a few close family friends are also being included.

However you celebrate, it is a day to remember to give thanks and be grateful for all that has come your way.

What are you thankful for? For me the big 3 are family, friends, and good health.

Enjoy your holiday!
