Nostalgia at Thanksgiving

My family is on the way here for the holiday. We have a niece and husband and nephew and wife here already – brother, sister in law, niece and nephew here around midnight. I have been cooking all day, with good help from my niece and her husband and my mom too. We will have more arrive as the weekend progresses – 14 by Saturday. I am so full of happiness when my family is here – I call them the thundering herd  or the  fam-damily- but they are my heart.
I’m not sure when it happened. I have become nostalgic. I want the  kids to have these memories of us together, like I remember holidays at my grandparents in Texas or Arkansas, with all the cousins, aunts and uncles. I want them to look back and tell their children about times at the farm (the last really good shack) or summers at the lake with their aunt and uncle.  Is that my legacy – my immortality? I don’t know. But what I do know is that I love these people extravagantly with my whole heart.

I hope everyone has a happy and love filled holiday.

    • It is a unique holiday – not sure if any other culture celebrates with a thanksgiving type of holiday. For my family it has always been one of homecoming, celebrating with food and much laughter. Thanks for dropping by – have a lovely day!
