I have a story to tell you about this Thanksgiving. Every year for as long as my daughter can remember I made the full Thanksgiving meal. I would cook appetizers, the turkey, dressing sides and it would only be for the four of us. We would eat on the food I made all day long. We would decorate the table and Zoe would get to help. This year we didn’t have any supplies and my daughter was worried it wouldn’t feel like Thanksgiving. She reminded us to go to the store and I told her daddy already did. She said where’s the turkey mom? We didn’t get a turkey this year we got some ground turkey and your dad is going to make burgers. She broke into tears and said it’s not going to be Thanksgiving.
I hugged her and told her that it would still be Thanksgiving because we were a family and grateful for all we have. It’s not the turkey and food that makes Thanksgiving but us being together and thankful. She didn’t believe me and was very sad. On Thanksgiving day, her dad had her help make the burgers and they were delicious. Who knew that Turkey burgers could taste so good. We went around the table talking about what we were thankful for and suddenly she realized it was still Thanksgiving. This just proved to me that traditions are really important to kids and hopefully Zoe will remember that it’s not about the food.
