Today I came to a realization: I just don't like the holidays! Is that so wrong? I find them to be more trouble than they're worth, besides being a painful reminder of what I don't have. So I don't have any holiday spirit. It is what it is. Today I will still put on a happy face and no one will be the wiser. I will ignore the bitter feelings and be truly thankful for what I have.
And I will eat turkey and green bean casserole and pie and drink wine all day. Because really, that is what Thanksgiving is all about, isn't it?
Happy Thanksgiving, my friends. Thank you for being a bright spot in this bitter scrooge's life. ;)
