Thanksgiving 2020

A tiny turkey breast seems almost lost in the oven. It’s almost time for it to trade places with the oysters and the green bean casserole. One oven, so everyone has to take turns. The pie was baked last night and is ready to go and a premade vegie tray awaits its turn in the refrigerator. Mashed potatoes of the instant kind, will be the last minute dish prepared. Just boil some water and add the potato flakes!

There are no grands or great grands coming up the back stairs and throwing the door open to announce their arrival, slinging their jackets wherever they land. There will be no cherry delight traveling from my daughter’s home (why do I always forget to clear a space in the fridge for that?). No hugs, no political arguments (thank goodness for that) and no Christmas wish lists to share with each other ( we have already done that online and with texts).

It will just be three of us, but we still have lots to be thankful for. Our family, so far, is healthy, and able to do their own things on this Thanksgiving day. We all have enough to eat and a place to live, friends that keep us centered or off kilter sometimes, and we all have hopes for the future.

I wish for you all a wonderful day, a different day, a hopeful day and a day full of thanks!
