Thanksgiving was a Friendsgiving

Friendsgiving was fun. I hosted Friendsgiving at my apt. I made a lot of food! I made pumpkin pie, mashed potatoes, deviled eggs, baked apples, a chicken stuffed with chestnuts, mushrooms, and onions in a cream sauce,  and made real whipped cream by hand. There was bread, Mexican soup, curry veggies, and spicy pork and potatoes. There were 3 Americans, 4 French, and one Chinese. It was a good group of people and the food was sooo good! I miss food! I mean I love spicy so much that I love when my lips tingle from the spicy but I miss good food that’s not spicy and homemade!

Thanksgiving is a special holiday because it’s about being thankful what you have and appreciating it, especially family and friends because without them life wouldn’t be what it is! And I know better than most that I need to be thankful. I have had so many amazing experiences and opportunities but they have taken me away from home and away from the country. I miss out on a lot of things and I especially miss out on time with my mom and friends. I’ve missed 3 Thanksgivings, 1 Christmas and so far 3 Easters and 3 Birthdays at home. (soon to  be 4 Easters and Birthday) The things we have are great and they help make our lived easier or make us happy or just because but people and time are the 2 most precious things we have and a lot of time we take them for granted because we think I always have more time or the person will always be around but that’s not true. Remember to be thankful and to remember the people in your life that you love and that love you!
