Happy Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is always an interesting holiday for me.  On the one hand, I love being around family, carving the turkey, and just relaxing with everyone.

I'm an oddity though, because most of the foods associated with traditional Thanksgiving are foods I'd rather not be eating.  For example, I'm not a huge turkey fan.  I'll eat it, but it's not my favorite.  I don't eat stuffing whatsoever.  And I'm very picky about what veggies I enjoy (I like corn and green beans).

I've told my wife in past years that if I had my way, Thanksgiving would be a meal composed Mexican dishes.  I'd have enchiladas and smothered burritos (homemade only of course).  Mexican food is my favorite, so I figure if I had it my way, that would be what I'd choose to stuff myself on.  Maybe when I'm retired I'll put my foot down one year and demand a Mexican food-filled table.  It could happen.

In any event, I wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving.  I hope you enjoy wonderful moments with family, minus any squabbles.  I wish peace for those of you who have lost family members recently.  Most of all, I wish that everyone feel God's grace in their lives - no matter how it is manifested.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

Happy thankgiving to you. My children even though they're all in their teens or twenties now insist we have the same menu year after year. We'll be having that turkey every year.

I hope your Thanksgiving was a good one, Eric.

I am looking forward to my Christmas Turkey. I never touch it during the year and enjoy it all the more on Christmas Day. If I was in the US, Thanksgiving and Christmas would have Turkey on the table, with every veg I can think of!
