My favorite holiday is upon us, one that brings families and friends together. We have a crowd of twenty-two joining our feast and fellowship this year, which is more than ever.
Especially nice will be seeing some new faces with our niece and two of our children each inviting a friend. It brings my wife and me joy to see them feel comfortable enough to invite a friend.
We will also be meeting the son of one of our nephews for the first time. They live in California and he has not had the opportunity to bring him east until now.
Of course, we are excited to have everyone here. My daughter asked how long ago did we start this tradition. When my grandmother passed away, going to her home for Thansgiving passed away with her. So, we remember her by making her cornbread dressing and continuing her tradition.
Please enjoy your Thanksgiving and travel safely if you must. Hug everyone a little longer this year and share plenty of stories.
