Happy Thanksgiving - What Are You Thankful For?

Penulis : A. James on Monday, November 19, 2012 | 3:36 PM

Happy Thanksgiving!

After the food is prepared and on the table, do you and your family talk about what you are most thankful for? I'll be honest - sometimes we do and sometimes we don't. When there are a bunch of grand kids and kids roaming around the house, it can be hard to gather them all into one room. Why?

We always meet at my parents house and their kitchen table is built for two.

Their 'table for two' is where the food is prepared and spread out when it's time to eat. Then, we gather around the table and the Thanksgiving Day food long enough to thank God for the food, then everyone grabs a plate and roams around to find a place to sit and eat. We eat in different rooms while we yell back and forth to talk. Sounds awful, doesn't it?

Actually, it is amazing.

It is how I remember it as a child too. You see, my grandmother lived in the same house before she passed away and my parents moved into it. My grandmother was such a great cook that family from all over would meet at her house every Thanksgiving and chow down.

She had so many people on Thanksgiving Day that some of the family would have to sit out on the front porch swing and eat - even when it was snowing!

It didn't matter though. It was a time to get together to spend time as a family even if it meant yelling from room to room.

So, what am I thankful for?

Small houses and the memories made in those houses. And to my family who may be reading this - I love you.

Happy Thanksgiving!
