Thankful For Thanksgiving

    I feel like, because of its history, Thanksgiving can have a bad wrap, so, regardless of its history, I thought I would express my thoughts on how thankful I am that the world we live in now is nothing like it was so many years ago. If you are lucky enough to be in a family and gather together for a Thanksgiving Dinner, I think it’s safe to say you are more lucky than most. I can certainly say I have been blessed to have such a family that is capable of amazing love, comfort, and care. I wouldn’t trade them for anyone else. However, if you are one of those who haven’t really been able to get together with your family, or family gatherings are simply not possible, Thanksgiving can be a rough time. Certainly, no one wants to spend Thanksgiving alone. After all, Thanksgiving is all about being with others and getting together to talk while enjoying amazing food and good times full of laughs and memories. However, some people simply do not get that luxury. I have never been in the position where I didn’t have anywhere to go for Thanksgiving, but I know plenty of people who have. Some of these people don’t really have families that they can call their own and others are under certain circumstances that prevent them from getting together with others.    What I have learned, however, is that family doesn’t have to be bonded by blood. If you have a place where you feel at home, whether it be with a special someone or even a group of great friends, you can gather around a table full of food and call anyone your family. As they always say, “Home is where the heart is.”
