Thanksgiving Day is a day for giving thanks for all the blessings we have received. It is a day for family and friends. It is a day for feasting on turkey, dressing, and everything else that is placed on the table in front of us.
Instead of dishes, my wife would give my brother Joe and I platters so we could fit a little of everything we wanted on one plate. Sometimes, we would still come back for more. We would then sit in the recliners, watch about five minutes of football, and then promptly fall asleep.
My brother died of a heart attack in 2000.
Thanksgiving Day is also a day for remembering our departed loved ones.
