So, what's Thanksgiving about? It could be reasonably assumed that it's about giving thanks, from the name.
I came from a pretty well to do family. Lots of food of the best kinds on the table. Prepared with skill by good, experienced cooks. Quality ingredients. Great variety.
Through circumstances and hard choices, I'm not well to do. I get buy. I can look myself in the eye every morning when I shave. I can cook, and bake. I shop at Costco, Fred Meyer's, and Winco, sometimes at Walmart. I make a feast out of everything I have, and share it with whomever is there.
I am thankful.
My two bits worth.
