I’ve always preferred to call Thanksgiving- Turkey Day. I wasn’t always the most thankful soul.
What was I supposed to be thankful for? And to be properly thankful I have to thank God?
The last decade plus of my Thanksgivings have been so-so. Plenty of reasons to give as to why it wasn’t my favorite holiday. But it is my favorite holiday. I just had not realized it yet. Or maybe I had I just repressed it.
This year is different to the most extreme. I’m looking forward to Turkey Day with an increased fervor. I’m so thankful and grateful I feel that trying to express just exactly how thankful and grateful I am would cause my head to explode.
I don’t have to work the day before Thanksgiving for more than half of a day. I don’t have to work Thanksgiving for what seems like the first time in 8 years. I am so fucking grateful for my life and the future.
I wont be celebrating Christmas this year or most likely any year in the future. I don’t see the point. But Thanksgiving I’ll look forward to as long as I’m here!
