The scent of freshly baked pumpkin pie and sweet potatoes fills your nose. Young voices sound outside while the football is tossed around and the crowd cheers from the professional game of the tube.
Today, people spend days preparing for a meal that lasts only a few hours in reality. Thanksgiving can be a stressful time of year. It’s hard to avoid squabbles when multiple generations all come together for a good dinner.
In an age of electronics and social media, it’s an opportunity for face to face conversations and the bond it creates. It’s a chance for backyard football games and the favorite board games that bring out rivalries and competitiveness in every generation.
But most importantly, Thanksgiving is about being thankful for what we have, the people in our lives, making it through another year and for everyone that is still with us. And for those who have left us, it’s a moment to be grateful for the time we had with them, the wonderful lives they led and the legacy they’ve left behind.
