This was a great Thanksgiving. For the first time in more than two decades, we were able to watch the Macys Thanksgiving Day Parade live. Even when living in California, only bits and pieces made it to the west coast and usually those had been taped earlier due to the time difference. We watched it from beginning to end and enjoyed each minute.
For dinner, we went to a local restaurant for ribs and chicken. Though we missed the camaraderie involved with having friends over for dinner, as our friend Kat reminded us, last year we were in Cypress with her. I used to mourn not having traditional Thanksgiving dinners, but each year, that feeling fades into lighter shades of regret.
