Grateful for a Shared Dinner

On Monday Canada celebrated Thanksgiving. Turkeys were cooked and families sat around the table to eat together. On Sunday we went over to my cousin’s for a double celebration: for his birthday as well as for Thanksgiving.

His attempt at cooking turkey was successful: it was moist and tasty. What I enjoyed most, though, was the chance we had to talk about a range of topics. I was grateful that while sharing a dinner made especially for the occasion, we had the chance to connect and talk about current issues as well as reminisce on the past .

Thank you for last week’s contributions. I enjoy reading what others are grateful for – the posts make me think of other things I am happy to have in my life.

  1. Sounds like you had a wonderful holiday, Colline. I do wish our Thanksgiving was as early as yours to the North. You know, away from Christmas and the shopping season. “Black Friday” mania is robbing our holiday of any meaning.
    I guess I would say that I’m thankful that my friends and family haven’t fallen prey to the hype and all stay home for the holiday.


    1. I like the Thanksgiving at this time too John. It is also before Halloween and all that it brings.
      And as the shopping season approaches I begin to avoid the centers. I prefer buying gifts before the mayhem.


  2. Sweet! Girl, that turkey is making me hungry! Great shot. 🙂 I love Thanksgiving. Ours is a month away and I am so looking forward to it. I love to cook, love to eat, love the different fragrances and spice drifting through the house and love catching up with family. Sometimes, we take a trip out of town and go up into the mountains to vacation and sight see but not this year. Sounds like you and your family had a lovely time. I’m so glad. 😉 And happy birthday to your cousin.
