Celebrating Thanksgiving this year will be fun even with your family!!

Thanksgiving is coming next week. Many of us travel miles and miles to get the chance to sit around the table or living room and be with the people we love…or are our family…or some of these people who we use to love…maybe now tolerate.

If Aunt Martha is there and she is in charge of gravy, it will be lumpy. If Uncle Steve is there, he WILL talk about how good the Yankees are. Mom will probably talk about the people she misses. Dad will share a beer and maybe some politics. Your sister is probably dating that same guy who you did not like last year.

Be nice. Being silent is necessary. Listen, observe and be grateful that this group of “annual gettogetherers” are yours. It could be worse. And most likely, when you take a deep breath and get out of your own way, they will be the people you will get together with again next year.

There is a clue in the word around this holiday…”Thanks giving”. Try it, you will like it!! Remember, they put up with you, travel those miles and keep coming year after year.
