Happy Thanksgiving 2014

I wrote this on my Facebook wall this morning:  "I wish a Happy Thanksgiving to all those who cannot share the day with family - those deployed service men and women who are sitting in camps far away from home; those who have no family to be with; those who are to ill or sad or otherwise unable to make it out of the house.  My best wishes and virtual hugs to you!"

 

On this beautiful snowy Thanksgiving day, my thoughts are with those who perhaps are not in the best place right now.  Those who may have a lot of reasons not to be grateful.  I hope that anyone in that position might find something/anything to be thankful for - however small. And I hope that the next year is better and next Thanksgiving they can share with friends and family.

 

As it so happens, I have spent holidays alone in the past and while it's fine to spend a normal Thursday alone, for some reason being by yourself on a major holiday, especially with all the marketing that screams togetherness, can be lonely.  So I am sending out my virtual hugs and my virtual "Happy Thanksgiving" wishes to anyone who might need them.  I raise my glass with you.  Enjoy your day.

Sybil - Thank you!  It was really for anyone who is alone (including those in a base far away).  I hope you have a great day.

Kat I am thankful I found you in the RAIN. I was up the same time you were this morning and I wrote a very long Thank you post to just about everyone. By around 7 am my time I noticed not one person sent me an comments. That's because my post was in draft and all it took was my photo and first paragraph. So..... I am also thankful when systems work!

Happy Thanksgiving Kaqt!

Oh this is so sweet Kat.  I have had 2 odd Thanksgivings...one in Lyon (in college) where they don't celebrate it...but 16 of us students got together in 500 yr chateau and it was so challenging finding a turkey and one time when I was around 10 and we were on our way to my aunt's in NYC...and car broke down in Yonkers.  We spent 4 hrs on the side of the road as no one works on Thanksgiving.  I remember being starving as my mom wouldn't let me eat lunch that day.  We got home at 10pm.  It was very depressing.

Larry - Thank you for your comment!  Happy Thanksgiving!

Debbie - Oh my gosh - and you still remember the time when you were around 10!  That day didn't go how you expected it to - that's for sure.  I love the thought of 16 students trying to find a way to do a turkey - that must have been fun.

Will - Thank you so much. You are special also!

It is true, a lot of people do not have a luxury of sharing food with families or friends, many are in hospitals, etc. I'm blessed too, that I have someone I love and who love me. My family is the most important in my life.

I had never really thought about what it must be like to be alone on Thanksgiving Kat. This has been an eye-opening read this morning!
