Thanksgiving Day

One of my favorite holidays…Its time for our whole clan to get together – and because of the various religious denominations – it is the one day when we are in uniform agreement about giving Thanks to Our Supreme Lord – in all the names by all the languages we speak…the blessings of the meal is the most interesting part since it is repeated in various languages and never by the elders but by the minors…

This year there is much to be Thankful for in our clan…Some have moved to the far corners of the planet; but return for this very special event in our family life… This year some have gone on the adventures of their lives; leaving behind anxious parents…Some have returned from danger zones -My Son is home for the Holidays for the first time in 5 years! We have gone through a few health scares; and we have had a death… but it has served to bring us closer together even if the ride was bumpy…

Thanksgiving for our clan resembles the stories surrounding the first Thanksgiving in America…of the Indians and the Settlers… ours is also a table surrounded by people of different races; different religions; social and economic varieties- bound by blood, by marriage, and one thought – To give Thanks as a Family!

Let’s Eat!

    This is a really nice take on Thanksgiving. Truly, we should be thanking our Lord, which ever deity we believe in…interfaith harmony is really important!
