happy thanksgiving from down under!
a meaningful holiday. full of firsts. first time i prepared any type of food for a festive feast. and a ham of all things. first holiday dinner away from family. a meal celebrated with lovely strangers. one commonality – canadians in search of celebrating a native tradition. all grateful. all thankful. it was delicious meal with warm memories of ‘how mom used to make it’. new friends becoming old friends.
and thankful i am. to have found a home away from home. to rejoice and become appreciative of the blessings i have in my life. a significantly special thanksgiving indeed – the essence of the holiday shining through.
