I am sitting at a giant table made by my brother and Dad while writing this. We have so many friends and family coming for Turkey Day that they decided to make a giant table. It is the first time in years I am at home for the holidays and most of the family, minus one brother is coming (he will join for Christmas), and it will be memorable.
Over the years I tended to just visit family during business trips but lately I haven’t needed to travel so I decided this year we would make the trip. Having kids myself now makes it more important to all get together and experience some holiday time. For me, this is the best time to enjoy the states. All the commercialism aside, the festive season is enjoyable when all your family is around.
I know not everyone enjoys the season and it is a very personal time. I hope anyone out there not enjoying the festive season has a friend or two to reach out and bond with. I am very thankful I am surrounded by family and friends. This is what it is all about.
Take care and enjoy the day.
