I used to think this was a nonsense holiday. A day of eating too much food and being thankful didn't make much sense to me. The goal now, of course, is to remain thankful everyday, without being a pig.
This year we are preparing the Thanksgiving meal for the first time. Six people will be our guests. These six people may or may not be talking to each other which will make it especially challenging.
I wrote yesterday about change and the fact that traditions, such as dinner at my childhood home were no longer possible. I'm all for mourning this loss, but it is now time to start a new tradition.
