Happy Thanksgiving to all, and a belated greeting to our Canadian friends who had theirs on Oct. 10th.
In my family, this holiday is second only to Christmas in get-to-gether tradition and importance, but it has been some years since we have managed to do that. We are just too far apart now, and my 2 brothers now have their own family traditions. So I'm on my own even though I do have Ken as he celebrates with his own family. I usually try to make a special meal for myself that's out of the ordinary, but that doesn't involve too much work or leave too much in the way of leftovers. This year I'm planning to splurge a little and make it lobster tail as that is one of my favorite foods. Hopefully I can find some available somewhere. Our Costco usually has them and we're planning to check today. Ken and family usually do a turkey along with a prime rib roast.
Of course being thankful for my many blessings is an important part of it all. ;)
Most important of those is my loving partner Ken who continues to bring meaning and happiness into my life. Financial stability and my relative good health at my advanced age are other reasons I have to be thankful.
Whether you're planning to celebrate with family or friends, or by yourself like me, here's hoping you all have a very Happy Thanksgiving! ;)
