Wednesdays Question

It's Wednesday so that means it's question time. It's time to ponder and then answer just one question. Okay, you can add all you want as a reason for your answer too. We'd all like that. I'll even answer my own question as that's only fair.

So here's this weeks question: What is one of the most memorable Thanksgivings you've experienced? If you don't celebrate Thanksgiving then what is a memorable event in your life.
The last Thanksgiving dinner my mother did for the family. She was already diagnosed with ALS and knew this was the last Thanksgiving dinner she would prepare. It was a most memorable day. As hard as it was for her to do, she did everything (except the dishes) one last time. It was a labor of love. I wish I could relive that day again.

  1. My most memorable one was in my childhood. All the family would come; people you only saw at holidays and funerals. Grandma and my Aunt Opal cooking for days, delivering meals with my granddaddy. Those were great years. I had a good childhhood!

  2. I love them all but probably when I was a kid and my grandparents were still living and everyone, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins all gathered. And I ddn't have to do ALL of the dishes by myself. :)

    Small grathering this year. Friends who have become family will be here and phone calls to and from the sisterdears and brotherdears will happen. Good food and fun.

    Have a perfect day! big hugs xoxo

  3. none of my thanksgivings have been anything out of the ordinary that makes one stick out more than the others. Same old thing every year, I over eat :)

  4. Thanksgiving has never been a big deal in my life since I had my own business and so would give all the people that worked for me the day off and I would take care of all the horses. It made me very happy to do that. It is just a good day to be thankful for all that you have and one thing I have is my health. Take care Sandee and have a great day tomorrow.

  5. I attended Thanksgiving at my Son's home in Huntley, IL a couple of years ago. That's the only occasion of that kind which was unforgettable. My grandson, daughter-in-law and my son made it memorable for us. We had a couple of friends from India apart from a relative from New York. We enjoyed the spirit of the event in addition to the sumptuous food.

  6. Just had an early Thanksgiving dinner with some friends and some new ppl. After a few glasses.. we were all laughing over silly things like old friends.
    The best part of the night was when the cat jumped up to the counter and stole a whole turkey leg. *LOL* It was hilarious to see the cat dragging the big turkey leg over the floor.

  8. My husband and I enjoy our quiet Thanksgivings together every year but I really miss when we used to go to my grandparents. Those were my favorite days ever.

    Hope you have a happy day! Scritches to Little Bit!

  9. I've have many wonderful Thanksgivings, but I'd have to say the one that really sticks in my mind is one my family and I had about 15 years ago. My mom had it at her house and there were about 12 of us in attendance. My nieces and nephews were all very young that year and they made that day such an especially happy time. So many smiles! So much laughter! Really didn't matter what we ate that day - it was just simply the best Thanksgiving ever! We were all together. Like you Sandee, I'd give anything to be able to go back to that wonderful day! :)

  10. Oh, what a bittersweet Thanksgiving that had to have been for all of you.

    One of the most memorable Thanksgivings we had was the one time we weren't able to go back home for Thanksgiving. It was just a couple of us gathered, and I told my husband I'd make pumpkin pie for him, since he couldn't have his mom's. I forgot to put the sugar in the pie. It still gets brought up on a regular basis.

    Have a great day tomorrow!

  11. Loved the years we had Thanksgiving at the hunt camp...kids, dogs, all the wonderful outdoors, complete with camp fire. Any time with family/friends is special.

    Happy Thanksgiving, my friend. Love ya...

  13. First it is great that you have such a wonderful Thanksgiving memory of your mom Sandee. Thanksgiving is not celebrated in Jamaica but the memorable event that I can remember is watching the Olympics with my twin in 2008 a few months before her death. We have always been big sports fans so it was special that she was able to enjoy those moments where our athletes did very well.. Have yourself a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  14. That's a nice memory you have of your mother's last Thanksgiving. The most memorable one for me is probably when my grandmother dropped the turkey on the floor one year but never told anyone until long after.

  15. No one Thanksgiving sticks out, really -- they are all beautiful, with lots of family and food.

  16. :)) I tell this often this time of year. It is almost a tear jerker:

    I once spent Thanksgiving in a rented room above a downtown bar in Lincoln, Nebraska. My friend "D" (a girl, but not my girl friend) went to her parents but I had to work on Friday so I stayed in town. She had TV, I didn't. And some nice food in her fridge. I have long since lost track of "D". (She wasn't the "D" I later married.)

  19. What a sweet memory for you!

    My most memorable was my first turkey for a big family dinner (in-laws). I had no clue you had to empty the bird out before you stuffed him (I was a very young bride w/no turkey experience, lol). Quite the surprise...and they laughed. I love that family. :)

  21. Thanksgiving was my mom's favorite holiday, and as long as she was alive the family always showed up, so every one was memorable and wonderful.

  22. Happy Easter! I loved all of your jokes, especially this one,

    "All work and no play can make you a basket case." So, I hope you're relaxing today, and have the best Easter of all.

    Much love,

    Ann
