Thanksgiving is right around the corner:time to be grateful...

Thanksgiving has always been one of my favorite holidays! it goes back to the days when we relocated from Europe to the United States.I have always connected Thanksgiving with LOVE and of  Family Values. Needless to say, having moved from the East Coast to the West Coast we lost many friends and relatives that would gather around the Thanksgiving Dinner Table.In spite of that I still prefer staying home although we were often invited to other homes since we became "orphan's". I always chose to stay home.

So with that said I am grateful that we have a home with three cats and a dog and we are in a financial position to take care of all of them. Needless to say I suspect the Vets are grateful too that we can give such good health care to our pets.

Diane and I will be celebrating Thanksgiving with our four legged kids. Never the less I still will prepare a traditional Thanksgiving Dinner even if no one shows up... that is a tradition I picked up from Diane's mother and we both agreed it is fun to pick on the Turkey and the bones when we are at home alone:))

So what are you doing for Thanksgiving and what are you grateful for?

In case you need a refresher here is the definition of grateful:

 

adjective
1.
warmly or deeply appreciative of kindness or benefits received;thankful:
I am grateful to you for your help.
2.
expressing or actuated by gratitude:
a grateful letter.
3.
pleasing to the mind or senses; agreeable or welcome; refreshing:
a grateful breeze.

Hi Endre -- I think bone-picking is a very underrated activity.  As for me, it's over the river and through the woods....well, the SoCal equivalent with a trip down the "5" Freeway for a free meal and hopefully no political discussions.    Enjoy!

I am grateful I don't have to cook a turkey with all that entails because I have had to roast turkeys since I was old enough to reach the sink with a stepstool, and instead I get to get dressed up and go out to dinner at the historic Firehouse Restaurant in Old Sacramento with the love and joy of my life, my husband, as the Thanksgiving orphans that we are.

In the last 31 years all but 2 years I have cooked Thanksgiving and invited people in. I will cook this year though the crowd will be very small. I am okay with that and love the special time of being together. Thanks for sharing.

Dorie Dillard  Diane's mother used to do the big dinner and then when we went to relatives of theirs for dinner she would still bake the Turkey... loved it to make leftovers, sandwiches etc....

Sheila Anderson  I am sorry to hear it and I do know how that is... my mother passed away on the 19th of November and I had to fly to Hungary.... needless to say it took a few years before I got back in the swing of things with Thanksgiving....Endre
