Red face Happy Thanksgiving, everyone

Want to wish everybody on here a very wonderful, thankful Thanksgiving. I'm very happy and grateful for so many things I have in my life.
If traveling please be very careful and truly enjoy your time.
I also want to give a shout out to all the new forum members since last year. We're happy you're here.

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday.

Our family has a lot to be thankful for. We have had our share of hardship , loss , and lean times. Who hasn't????

When my kids were very young I was laid off from my job. After awhile we were dead broke. My parents wanted to help us and I said no. I almost stole to feed the family. We used to play a game and give the kids bread with mustard on it and play make believe that there was bologne between the bread.

After awhile I accepted help from folks on both sides of the family and we made it thru. I also have lived in a car or van at different times of my life . Sometimes for several years at a time at different job sites so we could save money.

The last 30 years have been fairly good ( knock on wood ). the kids and grands are healthy. And we all eat. We have been lucky or maybe thru very hard work we have become lucky. We help people when we can , especially lately when it seems there are so many wildfires, shootings , and people losing their homes and going bankrupt. I don't really understand it.

Oh well, hoping all you major snowfall , a full belly , and good health for the holidays and new year.

It's only since I've worked with some American colleagues that I've really started to try to understand the Thanksgiving thing.


I know the origins of the festival are in "thanks to God", but if I have understood correctly, there's an element of being thankful/grateful for what we have now, today, maybe with a flavour of "appreciation" for what we actually have?



I think it's great to take the time to have those thoughts. It would do a lot of Europeans some good to have this sort of festival.
