Here's what I would like to say to people coming to my house for Thanksgiving. I won't say it, but I put it here for my kids to read now or later on. It's something that I feel strongly about. Here goes:
Thanksgiving is a time to remember to say thanks for all our blessings. I am blessed this year with our blended family and friends. As we sit here at the table, we are of many different backgrounds. We have English, Irish, Scottish, French, Native American, Philippine, Mexican, and Sicilian in our heritage. As we look at each other...our complexions are a little different...varying shades of light beige. We are different religions....Protestant, Catholic, and some just finding our way. We are old... in the last season of our lives, and young just starting out. We are straight and gay. We celebrate this day by coming together to share a meal. The world's in such turmoil.....people not getting along. I wish the world to be a more peaceful place. We can start by having peace in our own little families. That will branch out to neighborhoods, towns, states, countries and so on.We are one big blended family at the world's table.
Remember this meal was mostly prepared by a restaurant...so that makes the turkey Italian :)
Happy Thanksgiving to all my blogger friends. Have a wonderful day on Thursday.
Hugs from, Balisha
