Re: Budget101.com : Thanksgiving Dinner on a Budget
To me Thanksgiving was all ways about family gathering. When my kids are all gone and holidays roll around and they are not able to come over to spend holidays with their parents, I will then and only then go and help those that are less fortune. In today’s busy life and schedules I find it a privilege and a blessing that my family can get together on holidays.
I do feel sad for those who are less fortune, and I have spent my last 18 years volunteering more hours than people who work part time. But I do need to have family time. And we do enjoy a good meal and having that on holidays is not a sin.
I know there will be days when I will be spending holidays alone as my kids leave home, but now I do want to enjoy their company and memories with them.
