If the only prayer you said in your whole life was “thank you”, that would be enough.
Isn’t it interesting how traditions evolve? It seems that certain things keep repeating themselves until, at last, you realize they have become tradition.
Thanksgiving is the most traditional of our family holidays. We have the same food which is prepared by different hands and served on the same dishes year after year. Deviled eggs which were once made by Granny are still part of the menu because our good friend Judy recognized the need to keep them coming. We love her for that and for the sweet potatoes she brings.
The hubby roasts the turkey, and I now make the dressing since Mother is no longer able. The daughters have taken on the desserts, and this year I’m thinking will be a good time to introduce the granddaughters into the mix. Maybe they can take over the jello salad!
My favorite tradition, however, occurs when all are seated and we go around the table giving each person the opportunity to share that for which he or she is grateful.
What are your special family traditions on Thanksgiving Day?
