Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday. There is no pressure to buy presents or decorate. All you need is some food and a few people and pets you care about, and you're set. My heart goes out to all those who for any reason are struggling at this time. We are all just exhausted from the Covid-19 pandemic which has changed so much of our behavior and how we live our lives. I will definitely miss visiting my family for a few days of good eating, playing cards, watching football, catching-up, and shopping.

Even though things are difficult this year, I do feel very lucky. Since we decided to stay home, I’m planning a mini-feast for just the three of us. I do like to cook and am not intimidated by a turkey or sides. However, I did buy some sweet potato pie from the Shoprite in case my own pie doesn't turn out well. Years ago, my older sister and I perfected the art of the not-so-perfect pie. We can make pie crust dough OK, but are awful at rolling it out. We had to punch-in and piece together the crust. That year, we ended up calling our pumpkin pie a "frankenpie" because it just looked so weird and misshapen. But it was delicious! If it still tastes good, it doesn't matter how it looks. You can cover a frankenpie with a heaping pile of whipped cream and it’s just fine. Mistakes are part of the charm of Thanksgiving – it’s all about trying your best for those you love.

I have a life-time of Thanksgiving memories both good and not-so-good, and will add this tough year to the mix. The pandemic has certainly reinforced for me that we should not take anything for granted. Anytime we get to visit with our loved ones, or go where we want to go, when we want to and how we want to, we’ll always be thankful.
