Two years ago, when COVID was raging, we drove forty-five minutes and met my son in a Starbuck’s parking lot with a bag full of Thanksgiving dishes I had packed up for him.
This year, we’re hosting our first family dinner and out-of-town guests since pre-pandemic. Feeling thankful for that.
But also feeling gratitude that we found ways, even during times of isolation, to still make each other laugh, cheer each other up, feed each other’s bodies and souls, and share our love.
History teaches us that humans are nothing if not resilient. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. Family, friends, food, and fun. I hope however you plan to spend the day, you find a little something to be grateful for.
