Somehow Thanksgiving is always the hardest to be away from family for. It I kind of rediculous at this point, we haven’t been back “home” for 12 years and a good portion of those years I have worked Thanksgiving (this year I am on Christmas, yay.).
I miss going to my grandparents (who are both dead) and having a good time with family (my two uncles are also dead), having celery with cheese….
So, the key to me is making our own traditions. By jove I have a 12 year old. It’s time to own it.
So, me & the kids made 4 dozen of my favorite crescent rolls then we went on our poultry pedal this morning. After that I threw in the bird in (following Alton Brown’s Good Eats recipe), made smoothies and then it’s out to watch the Macy’s parade. I love that parade. It is all Thangsiving for me – a little piece of home.
I am thinking of a long game this afternoon, maybe the game of
Life… and then a movie tonight, I saw Amazon had Brave on sale.
Because the people I love are right here, and I am most thankful that one day Jesus has made it so my whole family can be together one day. So thankful for that.
So, if you’re away from family, how have you made Thanksgiving your own?
