We would all pile in the car to go to my grandma’s house. The smell of turkey when we got there. All the kids would go in the basement while all the grownups played cards upstairs. If I could back time.
Maybe one of the years when we all went around taking turns saying what we were thankful for in my family. It was especially meaningful when I wasn’t working and had been having some tough times.

It was the year after my mom had passed, my gram was gone… i was worried that my daughter would never know true family Thanksgivings. My aunt came up to spend the holiday with us. My mom was her sister and best friend, and she was hurting as well. We were in the kitchen preparing everything, and suddenly she started singing and dancing around the kitchen. My daughter and I joined and we were laughing and dancing. We spent the night before the holiday playing games and watching movies. and it proved to me that it isnt the number of people, but the people themselves. We had our family and it was great.
