I thought rather than a photo of food I'd have a flower today. Less calories! Ha! I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and enjoy your families and friends.
Days like this we should come together and forget past transgressions. Every family is dysfunctional to a degree and has it's own special people that get under our skin. I have never met one yet that has perfect harmony. Just relax and remember, nothing is perfect on this great earth.
If you are cooking and spending two days on a meal that will be over in twenty minutes, well, you are like all the rest of the families out there.
Expectations of the perfect table and perfect manners and perfect table talk and perfect food will surely lead to feelings that you should not allow yourself. Enjoy what you have when you have it and forget the rest.
And smile! Yes. Relax and smile. Take a deep breath. If you allow your self to do this I promise you will have a much better day.
It's also the 49th anniversary of the assassination of John F. Kennedy. In all the food and families and festivities please remember this day as well. One of the tragedies of our lifetime.
I am sorry if I am a bit "down" today. I'll perk up again tomorrow, promise! And I shall smile all day. Yes, I will. Hugs...
