When your heart doesn't come home for the holiday, you travel to where your heart is.
This year, Thanksgiving isn't a frenzy of cooking and baking. The Lad has his first adult job and had to work Wednesday, and then again early Thursday morning. while we only live two hours apart, a four hour round trip just wasn't going to work out. So, what's a Momma to do? You gather the the rest of the family and go to him! So, instead of fighting the lines at the grocery and spending hours in the kitchen, we're in Charlotte and going out for Italian.
We'd all planned on coming down first thing Thanksgiving morning, but then, I got a text yesterday afternoon, "Do you want to come tonight? I'm not doing anything tonight." Of course I do! I threw some clothes in the car and hopped in the car to spend an evening with my son. We went out for Pad Thai and then just hung out out my hotel, visiting and looking at the lights of the shopping center below.
Family...whether you are gathered around grandma's table, bbq'ing, eating tamales, or eating lasagna. today is about being with those you love and counting your blessings.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.
