… after another holiday with our family.
Thanksgiving has to be one of my favorite holidays. Even more so than Christmas.
We always spend the day with relatives. For our entire 35 Thanksgivings since we met.
This year a smaller gathering, as my nephew and his wife weren’t able to fly up to join us.
We give thanks for family, freedom and commitment. The type of commitment that those who serve us make when they choose what they do.
The sort of commitment that the armed forces, the police, fire departments, hospitals, and utilities/infrastructure companies make.
We thank these dedicated people working on holidays. I know there was much discussion all over the news, and the web, about stores opening on Thanksgiving.
In my world, I can’t imagine choosing time at Target or Walmart over time with family and friends.
But then, I don’t do Black Friday either.
I will just hang around waiting for Small Business Saturday. To get my Christmas greens, my small holiday gifts for family, and whatever else we may need.
Keeping it in our local family, in places like TLV, Breezy Willow, Kendall, Clark’s, Maple Lawn Farm, Big Cork Vineyards.
Buying Christmas gifts at the Conservancy crafts fair next weekend, the 7th.
Like Green Bridge Pottery. MD Beekeepers. Local artists.
Just giving thanks for living in such a wonderful small community.
