What I am Thankful For

Posted in Journal tagged , , , at 11:39 pm by Jenn

This year in keeping with our Thanksgiving tradition we joined hands around the dinner table and announced what we were thankful for. 

This year I said that I am thankful for the health of my family and friends.  Each person in turn said what they were thankful for and then when it came to one of our guests, a Marine he said that he was thankful for the food.  He said that he couldn’t remember when he’d had a home cooked traditional Thanksgiving. 

So in addition to being thankful for the health of my family and friends I’m thankful that I gave this young man something that he shouldn’t have gone so long without…a home cooked holiday meal.  I was also thankful that when I offered leftovers to take home, the young man took me up on my offer, saying that one of his favorite things was a turkey sandwich the next day.  Mine too.  I’ll be having one for breakfast.

Happy Thanksgiving.
