How Will Your 2020 Thanksgiving Look?
—Grace & Truth Linkup

What are you doing for Thanksgiving this year?

“It’s ok to have no answers.  It’s ok to hold our expectations in open hands.  It’s ok to do something completely different.  Or {gasp} nothing at all!”
– Linda Stoll

I need to hear Linda’s words. Our 2020 Thanksgiving plans are shaky this year.

Pending no rain, we’ll have an outside meal with my in-laws, physically-distanced around a bonfire, also depending on the unpredictable Alabama temperatures for November.

And another unknown factor. An aunt is currently battling a likely unsuccessful fight against COVID in her nursing home. We await news daily of her condition. 

Thanksgiving in 2020 definitely will look different this year.

But regardless of what we do—or DON’T get to do—I also need these words from Linda:

“What matters most is not what the menu holds for November 26th. More than ever, it’s where our hearts are focused.”

    “It’s ok to hold our expectations in open hands. ” Yes! I absolutely needed to be reminded of this today. Thanks for hosting and for the great quote. In 2020, I’m learning to hold on to my plans loosely too. Thank you for this!

    Thanksgiving is not a holiday here. I have often done a meal but with our current lockdown we can’t even have friends in the garden. We might make a pie and be thankful for that.

    Our family Thanksgiving may become a Zoom meeting! But I’d rather make do than do without as the old saying goes. Hopefully we’ll all be vaccinated in the next few months, and then we can celebrate all we’ve missed!

    Though it’s different it’s kind of the same – just us at home eating or doing whatever and at some point sitting at the table and giving thanks. Since moving to a state where there is no family, this has been our norm for holidays. A little hard at first but now we’re used to it.
    I honestly don’t want to social distance in someone’s yard, so home is where I’ll be.
