The question of the hour right now is what are the plans for Thanksgiving? Well, what are your plans for Thanksgiving? I'm not sure what people expect for us to do. Flee? Go somewhere tropical? Eat Chinese food? Maybe I’m supposed to sit and cry. It's Thanksgiving. I'm going to make a turkey and all the sides. I’m going to indulge and over eat. I’m going to sit at the table and say the things that I'm thankful for. I'm going to watch some football because our team is playing this year. Then I’m going to go shop with all the other crazy people that are fighting for “that deal.” That's what I do. I carry on. My life is incomplete and I missing the upmost important person to me, but like I've said before time keeps going. Day becomes night. Night becomes day. One day goes into the next. So for Thanksgiving we will invite our families as we always do. I will probably shed some tears in my closet but we will celebrate the American holiday to kick off the Christmas season as we do every year.
You can do it. Carry on the traditions that you have as a family with your kids, or whomever. Or don't. Do whatever feels right to you and don't let anyone tell you there is a right and wrong way to be doing this Holiday.
