Thanksgiving Day is going to look a little different for some families this year. I am blessed that my small family will be gathering together to celebrate the holiday and my grandson’s 15th birthday. However, for those who cannot be with their families, we are blessed and thankful that we can still communicate with them.

I was crocheting a pair of turkey slippers one night and thought, what would I do if I could not be with my family? My resolution would be to schedule a family dinner virtually. I would schedule a time for dinner and ask everyone to make their turkey dinner. Then we can all meet on Skype or Facetime and eat together. I would also send a pair of these adorable turkey slippers to every hostess, to show gratitude for putting together a feast for their family.

Yes, things are going to be a little different this year, but we all can remain thankful for our families. Now I think I will phone my brother and sisters and see if they would like to try out my idea.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family… Robin
