Thanksgiving 2021

Thanksgiving is here already. It seems like yesterday we were celebrating the New Year. Most people are celebrating today with their families, while others may not be celebrating at all. Thanksgiving can be a time of joy and festivities, and it can also be a time to remember those we’ve lost. For me, Thanksgiving hasn’t been the same since my dad died. So much has happened in my life since then.

I’m not a big fan of turkey, and neither is my mom. We opted not to do the traditional turkey fixings this year but rather do different types of cooking. We added banana pudding to the menu because we felt like changing things up. It’s good. Mom made some dressing, and we had various foods to try because we both felt like experimenting in the kitchen. I’ll have to post the pics tomorrow to let everyone see how they turned out.

Several of my friends are not celebrating this day for a variety of reasons. The biggest one is that they will wait for the weekend to get here to visit their families. I know they will enjoy the time when they get it because they rarely get to see their families.

If you are celebrating today, I hope you have an incredible time catching up with your loved ones. But, if you are among the many who are going solo, remember that you aren’t alone. That’s tough to do when you don’t have anyone joining you. One of the things I enjoy doing is hosting Thanksgiving for others who aren’t celebrating the day. Unfortunately, my health is not up to par this year, making it more challenging to achieve this goal. However, I plan to start the tradition up next year once my surgery is over and I have a chance to get back on my feet.

If you are among the millions of people who are traveling, please be safe. I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving and can enjoy some well-deserved food, fun, and fellowship with each other.
