We Gather Together

 I hope wherever you are for the Thanksgiving holiday, whatever you eat, whatever your personal celebrations, that you spend it with people you love, and you find a way to tell them so.

I have in the past and it’s always a thrill to see turkeys wild and free, no matter what’s on your Thanksgiving platter.

For the holiday I’ll be with most of my family in snowy Cleveland, Ohio.  We’ll toast the son who couldn’t be with us, and if our luck holds in cyberspace, we’ll video conference with him.  More evidence that the Internet really can bring people together.

However you spend Thanksgiving, and whomever you spend it with, I wish you the very best.  May you find many things to be thankful for.

    I’m glad you get to be with loved ones on Thanksgiving even through internet access. My husband and I will be by ourselves this holiday so we’ll be making reservations. My family is spread out so we chose Christmas to be together this year. So Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

    Debbie, thank you and a happy Thanksgiving to you and your husband. Now you have Christmas to look forward to with the family. BTW, usually AFTER I’ve cooked a Thanksgiving meal, reservations sound awfully good. But this year all my children and some of the in-laws are doing the heavy lifting. This sounds like something else to be thankful for. Sitting back and enjoying their hard work.
