Giving Thanks

There is no turkey, no stuffing, no pumpkin pie.

There is no parade and no football.

There are no relatives coming in for the holidays.

There is no kid's table or good china on the adults table.

There are no ties on the boys and no cute, frilly dresses on the boys.

But, there is a lot to be thankful for and tonight as I think about what I am thankful for, I realize that Thanksgiving can happen anywhere and at anytime. Even if some of the pieces are missing, the feeling remains.

Happy Thanksgiving and remember to keep the feeling in your heart all year long.

Hi, and Happy Thanksgiving. I live in Saitama-shi with my Japanese husband and our 5 month old daughter. Our Thanksgiving was also missing the trimmings, but a whole day with Daddy and baby was a very THANKFUL day.
