I think it would be nice to share how GDG game players are going to observe Thanksgiving Day, or maybe a holiday with a different name in your country, if you have something similar. In the US we have a national holiday on the fourth Thursday of November every year to give thanks. Many people make a special effort to be together with family, but sometimes "family" is not confined to biological relatives.
What are you thankful for, if you could name at least one thing?
I'm eagerly looking forward to reading what anyone will share with the rest of us.
Thank YOU in advance for sharing! Very Happy

My family will eat at my daughters house this year.
Due to some personal issues we will be missing over half (7)
of our family members at our gathering this year.
My dad passed away last year and he will be missed terribly.
My husband is out of town with his dad who has had some health issues.
My brother, his wife and three children won't be able to be with us either.
It will just be my mom, my daughter, her husband,
my granddaughter and me (5) this year.
As bad as this year has been we are still thankful that it's as good as it is.
It could be worse and I'm sure there are others that are struggling too.
Except for losing my dad, I'm thankful that the rest of us are still here
and that my mom is doing as good as she is after her horrible surgery
issues from last year. We could have lost her last year too.
We all have a roof over our heads and food for our bellies,
that's a lot in itself to be thankful for.
Hopefully we will have more to be thankful for next year
and hopefully everyone else has as much or more to be thankful for now.

Sorry I got a bit long winded for a minute...
I hope everyone has a safe and wonderful holiday
eating lots of good food and making lots of happy memories
with family and friends.

ConnieLea, I don't think you were "long-winded" at all, telling about your family and some of your concerns. Thanksgiving is one of those holidays that brings us to reflect on what has changed since the last time it was this holiday last year. Anything we can see as improvement can be something we are thankful for.
My husband and I will go to our son and daughter-in-law's house and have dinner there. Our little granddaughter will be there too, which is the best part!
Our other two sons live too far away to come home for the holiday. Both will have just one day off for Thanksgiving. Maybe on Christmas we will get to see them.
In the past year I had my second knee replacement surgery. I am so grateful to be able to walk fairly normally again and not need a cane or a walker. I've certainly learned that if you have good health, that is more important than just about anything.
