It’s a hard thing every time I miss Thanksgiving Day or Christmas away from my nearest and dearest loved ones and my beloved American homeland.
Thanksgiving Day is just one of the best things about being an American, a time for memories and saying grace or having toasts over a fabulously gluttonous meal, and leftovers, and football and more football, and feeding and being with the poor without judgment, and all the traditions that bind us and make us the most amazing country there has ever been or ever will be, warts and arguments and all.
I hope your Thanksgiving is as beautiful as this picture and message about gratitude.
And I hope my Dallas Cowboys roll over the undefeated Carolina Panthers.
That would go a long way in relieving this homesick expat’s yearning to be with loved ones and lots of leftover turkey sandwiches.
