What does “Thanksgiving” mean to you? Do you have any special traditions for Thanksgiving? How do you spend your Thanksgiving holiday? Is this a time for you to travel? Or do you have friends and family traveling to you?

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I love hosting Thanksgiving dinners. This is something that I have done for many years. It was always a tradition for family and friends to come to our home when I was younger. I will always remember spending hours and days in the kitchen with my mother getting ready for Thanksgiving. After she passed away in 2014, I continued the tradition. I prepare all of the meals, do mostly all of the cooking and baking, and have a house full of loved ones.

However, this year, 2020, is going to be different. I started planning for this holiday some time ago, and had planned on having a house full. My husband and I started the shopping weeks ago. But, due to illness in the family, and Covid positive test results, things have changed. I am still going to do all of the cooking, but the only people in the house this year is going to be my husband David and myself. My daughter tested positive for Covid, so her and her little family have to be quarantined until after Thanksgiving. After everything is ready, my husband and I are going to be packing up food and delivering it to my daughter and her family. We will still have Thanksgiving, but will just have to do it in our own homes. Although this saddens me, I am still thankful that we will be able to enjoy the same food together, yet separately.

Sometimes we just have to change up the traditions a little bit. Although it may not be easy, and it may not be as fun as the real thing, it will still be a special time and something to look back on as a great memory.
