I'm at a point where I'd rather ignore Thanksgiving Day altogether this year. In recent years, I've spent several elsewhere rather than with my immediate family, sometimes by choice and sometimes by happenstance. One year in California, one in Arizona, two years in Rochester with George's family and last year in Florida. My older daughter is the only one with a place large enough and willing to cook for just our expanding immediate family. This year I'll be spending it alone. My daughter has cancelled the dinner she was planning because of Covid. Too many of the family who would be expected to come are out dealing with the public in some form or other. She plans on cooking and will deliver a care package to myself, her sister's family and perhaps her daughter and husband (although he has his own mother nearby them who likes to cook). I also won't be able to share my milestone birthday coming up in the next couple of days. Christmas doesn't look too promising either, I'll be away.
I hope that we all have a Happy Thanksgiving in spite of this unusual year and find blessings to be thankful for.
