The Most Enjoyable Holiday of the year
This long weekend that starts with Thanksgiving is one of the most enjoyable holidays of the year. Not only do we get 4 days off in a row, but it starts the months of family gatherings, enjoyable holidays and reflecting on the thankfulness in our lives.
We always celebrate with friends and what ever family we have close by. The wonderful smells of the holiday baking in the oven, the calls from friends and families sharing the holiday cheer and the excitement
building in the stores adds to the joy of the holiday season.
Today we will celebrate with friends and family and tomorrow we will bring Thanksgiving to my dad at the nursing home to join him at this time of year. Since he is immobile and ageing it has become too difficult to bring him out so we bring all celebrations throughout the year to him.
I know he enjoys the great smells and wonderful food that he doesn't get a chance to eat very often and gets the whole family to see at the same time all together.
My message to you all is too enjoy the holiday season and try and not focus on the commercial part of it as much as the holiday of giving and sharing of yourselves with others.
