2021, Thanksgiving

It has been another year and Thanksgiving is upon us again. This is the time of year I look forward to. I am not sure if it is the cooler weather, snow, or what. But, I just like this time of year.

Growing up

Thanksgiving was a great time for spending time with family. We would get together with family at the grandparent’s house and eat and visit. We stopped doing that when the families got to big and we all couldn’t fit in the grandparent’s house.

Times have changed

Now that my parents are gone, it doesn’t have that same meaning to me anymore. Since this is an odd year, we are supposed to be spending time with my side of the family. My siblings and their kids and so forth.

This year we booked a cruise out of Las Angles California, to go to Mexico for Thanksgiving. But with COVID and the policies they have in place, we decided to cancel that trip and just spend time at home.  We are hosting Thanksgiving this year, the first time we have ever hosted. Since we finally have room. 

What should I be Thankful for

This is a good thing to think about we all have different things to be thankful for in our lives. I have different things than you.  But we all should be thankful for life. The things that we hold close to our hearts. The things that we have in our lives, the people around us. 


What am I Thankful for

In the year 2021, I am Thankful for the following:

  • That I am still alive
    • No stupid COVID-19
    • That one day I will be able to travel again like normal.
  • The Freedoms I have
  • The ability to have the ability to say what I feel
  • For family
    • Wife
    • Kids
  • For health
  • For this pandemic
    • Yes, it has pushed me to do things I wouldn’t have done before

No matter where you are

 Just because, I am talking about a United States of America holiday. It shouldn’t stop you, no matter where you are for looking at things in your life you are thankful for. You should be thankful all the time.

Wish you
