When the leaves start to fall, my thoughts turn to Thanksgiving, my favorite holiday. Food, family and no presents. But not this year. For the first time since we’ve been grandparents, our whole family will not be together for Thanksgiving dinner.
Nobody seems to be having their traditional Thanksgiving this year. Normally, I would be starting to bake our must-have desserts to store in our freezer. I’ll probably make most of them anyhow, hoping that Seth will be able to come from New York for his 50th Thanksgiving dinner.
We’ll have a whole turkey because somehow just a turkey breast won’t work for me. We’ll have to deal with the leftovers.
We will still share our Grateful Jar with the whole family via Zoom. And we will take individual photos and ask one of our technology-savvy grandchildren to photoshop them into our annual family Thanksgiving picture.
I’m keeping my fingers crossed for Thanksgiving 2021.
