Thanksgiving is one of those family holidays that always reminds me think of my grandmother. For those of you who will have the honor of seeing one or more of your grandparents today – make it a point to spend a little extra time with them instead of watching football. You will cherish those times and those conversations. Ask them questions about their past. Ask them how they used to celebrate Thanksgiving. What is their favorite Thanksgiving memory? Do they have any special recipes that should be written down now?
The first Thanksgiving after my grandmother died was very difficult. I always wish I could have had one more.
