My Simple, Stress-Free Plans for Thanksgiving
I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving… and lots of homemade pumpkin pie!
Marquette, Michigan – November, 26, 2013 – As a single parent raising two girls, I have done my fair share of stressing over the holidays. It’s difficult to juggle multiple family dinner invites and make preparations for your own holiday meal.
With all the running we do to prepare for Thanksgiving, it can be easy to lose sight of the reason behind the holiday. Thanksgiving is a celebration of thanks and prayer, and this year, I have so much to be thankful for.
I have a great new job where I’ve made several new friends, I am proud of my oldest daughter’s independence and success (and equally happy that my youngest is still home with me), I have the love and support of a wonderful family and many friends… I really couldn’t ask for more.
My plans for Thanksgiving this year are simple: The whole family is going to gather at my house for a meal that we will prepare together. Afterwards, we’ll drink some eggnog, watch Christmas movies with the kids and just enjoy some much-needed family time.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

When not hard at work writing and editing, if this Sriracha enthusiast isn't experimenting in her kitchen, she can usually be found with her nose in a book or in front of a computer keeping up with her favorite blogs, researching topics for future articles, and playing World of Warcraft... FOR THE HORDE! (BattleTag: GingrMadness#1559)
Nancy's days of chasing little ones around are over for now, but she looks forward to chasing grandkids around in the future (the DISTANT future). UPDATE! That first grandkid is on the way! Pretty soon Nancy's going to be chasing another little Peanut around - in fact, L'il Peanut is expected to make his or her arrival right around Thanksgiving! Until then, she'll be enjoying the quiet and shopping for her new grandchild!
Always in search of a good red and a great read (or a great red and a mediocre read), Nancy welcomes your suggestions on either.
