Happy Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday because it is the one holiday when my whole family gets together.  We cook in the morning, take a break by going for a walk, return to finish the cooking and finally we sit down to eat.  I know many families eat their dinner in the afternoon, my family never did that.

We have always gathered at my parent’s house for Thanksgiving.  After my mother passed away my sisters and I took over the planning and cooking but still gathered at my father’s house.  It was not as enjoyable without mom and of course it was difficult for my dad to be without her.

The year that my father passed he died in November and we spent that Thanksgiving gathering in the house.  It was a difficult Thanksgiving.  Then the year after his passing we all rented a cabin in the mountains.  It was beautiful and fun to play in the snow however it was also sad not having my parents there and not spending Thanksgiving in their house.

This year we are spending Thanksgiving in my parent’

s house because this year I have been living in it and I have invited my siblings and their families here.  I am looking forward to having everyone here and for us to be together.  Thanksgiving to me is about family and this year it will be a special time for us, for us to remember my parents and the love they gave and how they taught us to be a family.
