Like many women, I work a lot of holidays. One of them is Thanksgiving. Here’s what I have to be thankful for — that I’ve gotten older and wiser!
There was a time when I felt like I needed to make the homeade Thanksgiving dinner my mother and grandmother did. Of course, they didn’t work outside their homes. I slaved for days over pies, stuffing, and assorted vegetables.
This year, I decided enough is enough. Yes, we will make a turkey, gravy, dressing, and green beans. But my 14 year old son got the job of making the cranberries, my sister-in-law is bringing the sweet potatoes, and I BOUGHT mashed potatoes, rolls, and pies. I also enlisted my husband’s help in chopping the celery and onions for the dressing.
Our Thanksgiving dinner won’t be entirely homeade, but we will gather around the table and I bet no one will go away hungry. And this year, maybe I’ll have a little time to actually enjoy the holiday — before I go to work!
