      It is three weeks until Thanksgiving.   What are you thankful for this year?  What will you be doing for Thanksgiving?

      As of now, I DO NOT have any plans for Thanksgiving. In the past, I have hosted many, many Thanksgiving dinners and believe it is one of the most important days of the year.

      Family, friends, laughter, excellent food, etc.,  a special day to be thankful for all the blessings we have… all in all, just the best holiday!  In conversation with friends, when the topic of  favorite meals comes up, I have always said: Thanksgiving… traditional turkey dinner!!! And of course, the left-overs!

      So as to my plans…kind of tough when you live alone;  they are the same as last year.  I ordered a take-out Turkey dinner from Denney’s… (for one) it was quite good and will probably do that again this year.

      Only one major change: because I can not chew or swallow this year, I will  take the turkey, gravy, veggies and put them in my blender……probably be real good over the mashed potatoes!  Yum!!! That will go down 🙂   See? Lots to be grateful for! No, I don’t feel sorry for myself… however,  just a bit sad. There are many folks, some dead, some in hospitals… that wish/wished they were as blessed as I am.

      Well Kathy, glad you asked (1st one to do that) . . . . . . . . .

      now I know what I will be doing, yes, I have a plan!

        Jan,

        That sounds good in blender, then over mashed potatoes.  I’ll try that.  I have diffculty swallowing too.  But I think I can do pumpkin pie.

      For us it will be having family here for dinner. Kids and grandkids. That itself is enough.

      We’re thankful that we’ll be able to have kids, grandkids and other family at our home for dinner this year. My husband won’t be able to eat much and we’re going to need to figure that out. He doesn’t like to eat in front of people anymore. Regardless, how lucky we are to still be a “whole” family for one more Thanksgiving. Like Jan, my favorite holiday is Thanksgiving. Family, food, good wine and plenty of laughs. So thankful!

      Now that my husband cannot eat or speak this year’s Thanksgiving will be low key. I’ll buy some deli turkey for an open face sandwich along with a small batch of cornbread. We will be together and that is enough to be thankful for in itself. We are in our late sixties so we’ve seen and celebrated some wonderful Thanksgiving holidays. We’ll be okay.
