I asked Sweetie last night if they celebrated Thanksgiving when he was growing up. He said they had friends and neighbors who would invite them. I have never experienced celebrating Thanksgiving. It's not something we celebrate in the Philippines.
This years has been really tough so I've been looking for excuses to celebrate (a.k.a. order yummy food!). I thought it would be a good time to experience Thanksgiving. A few days ago I started to look for Thanksgiving food delivery. Up until this morning I couldn't find any so we decided to just get some chicken.
Max's Restaurant had the perfect combo. They have a smaller combo now good for 3 which includes half chicken, kare-kare, pancit and lumpia. Ahhh what a feast! It was a lot so we'll have the rest for lunch tomorrow. Luckily Sweetie brought home some Thanksgiving dessert from the office so I got to try pumpkin goodies.
It's been a tough year, but there's so much to be thankful for and I am grateful for that. There's been so much bayanihan around us. Our medical frontliners have been taking care of all of us. They have sacrificed so much of themselves. To support these frontliners there are those who volunteered to provide food, additional PPEs, masks, face shield, shelter. And in the past month there's so many people helping those affected by the typhoons. Even though the year has been really tough it's been bringing out the best in us too.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Always be grateful and live life to the fullest!
