Glad you had a stress free Thanksgiving Sharon.
This was my 2nd Thanksgiving without any family (except my wife). All of my sisters are dispersed now so getting together even for a holiday is not easy. Soooooo Tara and I wound up at a restaurant with some friends and their family. Although it was very kind of them to include us, it kind of sucked being with so many strangers on what I remember as a great family day.
Thinking back to Thanksgivings past, my grandfather being the great patriarch, would host a massive table. I know there used to be over 30 of us. Aunts, uncles, cousins, parents, grandparents and great grandparents made for a very warm and special gathering. What terrific memories though.
