Untraditional Thanksgiving

11 Oct

Thanksgiving is the time we celebrate and give thanks to all, sharing dinner, desert & good company…most of us.

Growing up we always celebrated thanksgiving at my grandmothers. She would prepare everything from the Turkey and fixings down to the deserts. Of course my mom & aunt would always bring extras for everyone. It was nice and felt like what thanksgiving should feel like.

Seven years later everything has changed. There is no turkey, fixings, deserts or the like shared with our family. There is no annual thanksgiving get together as everyone’s lives have pushed everyone away from eachother. It’s almost as if it was grandmas bond keeping it all together and now, she’s no longer here. Everything is different.

It’s sad really, I miss it. We are still celebrating thanksgiving but just the four of us. Hubby, myself & the two kids. I’ll be whipping up a roast dinner, not all the trimmings but it’ll work.

I’m thankful for those I celebrated with in the past, being able to have those memories is priceless. And I’m thankful to have what I do and who I have today.

For those celebrating in any way, big or small, Happy ThanksGiving Canada!!!

    I feel the same since my grandmas passing holidays aren’t nearly the same
