This year Thanksgiving was very low-key at our house. Just the five of us. We didn’t leave the house at all. We slept in, prepared the meal, and relaxed afterwards. It was perfect. Here are some snapshots of our day.
The days leading up to Thanksgiving showed long lines at the local food pantry. We would pass by on the way to my work and see the lines wrapped around the buildings. The elderly, the young, mothers with kids, fathers with kids, all races…the kids were shocked about the number of people waiting for food. Sometimes it is easy to forget how fortunate we are. I am thankful for so much. Family, friends, healthy children, food, jobs, a home. Wishing everyone the best for the upcoming holiday season.
