What are you thankful for? What are you glad you have in your life? For me the smell of turkey cooking in the oven, stirring creamy potatoes, mixing the sherbet punch. These are some of the most memorable things from Thanksgiving over the years. Thanksgiving is truly my favorite holiday when it comes to the meal.
My family has a similar tradition to many families in that everybody brings a dish. We cook pastas, stuffing, quiches, pigs in a blanket, and so many more. It is always a blast prepping and cooking all the sides and main dishes, but I just enjoy getting to spend the quality time with my family. We laugh and reminisce about days past while we work. We have fun, but the most important part is that we are together. That is what I am thankful for this year. To spend time with the people who matter to me the most and share a meal together we all worked so hard to prepare.
It saddens me to imagine not getting to spend this holiday with them, but for some that is a reality. There are people out there that may not get to spend Thanksgiving with their loved ones, or maybe can’t afford to prepare a big meal. Luckily, we have a community that steps up and shows love to those that may not have these things. And for that, we say thank you Muscatine.
However you spend your Thanksgiving this year, find what you are thankful for in your life and express it. Especially if you are thankful for loved ones. Tell them just how important they are to you.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
