My favorite (American) holiday is Thanksgiving. Those of you in other countries should consider adopting it. No stress over shopping (well retailers are trying to change that but I ignore) for presents, no crowded streets, just time together with friends and family to enjoy a sumptuous feast …. And of course a reminder to be thankful for all we have.
We’ve had rain lately in northern California (something else to be thankful for) but the Thanksgiving weekend is often relatively warm and sunny. In fact some of the fall leaves are still in color on the trees and I see a hint of blue skies today. This year my sister-in-law has invited us to Seattle so we’re sure to have some rain. She and my brother-in-law will be putting on the feast for 17 people! We said we wanted to see all the nieces and nephews and looks like they’re accommodating us.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! And remember to take a moment to appreciate your life and those who mean the most to you.
