Well as of right now, I haven't even had a fork of nuthin!
You know my people eat late...and we run late on just about everything! But its all good. My dad has the BIGGEST grin on his face to be able to use his new Deep Fryer (indoor). House smellin all good! The neighbor even brought a turkey over for dad to fry!
So on the menu we are having:
Turkey & Dressing
Honey Baked Ham
Mac & Cheese
All the above...heavenly goodness.
I started my morning out with community service with my beautiful Sorors of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, INC! We usually spend our time Thanksgiving morning serving the homeless. Their dinner is usually served around 11:00am . The crowd grows every year.
This year, we decided to do something different. While the crowds are waiting in line, we thought it would be a good idea to serve them breakfast. We offered a variety of donuts, assorted fruits and juice. It went very well. Since people start lining up around 8am, it worked out really well.
The community service is very rewarding. I even caught myself before I began to complain about how cold it was out there. I suddenly remembered BEFORE I uttered a word how alot of these families have NO shelter and have to live out in these conditions. So...I suffered through and served my community. Very humbling experience.
I was happy children of my Sorors were out assisting as it was a humbling experience for us all.
Here are a few pics:
On another note...wow. I already shed my tears today, but I miss my NANA sooo much. I miss all my loved ones who are no longer physically in my presence. Holidays, just doesn't seem to be what they use to be. I have alot of distant family members who I don't get to see often. Just wanted to let yall know I love you and missed you for the holidays. This is also the first Thanksgiving that my baby girl will be leaving me to go with her other half today.. =(
I know I can't be selfish. So I will suck it up and I will see her on her return.
I'm ready to eat...for real...like right now!
Happy Thanksgiving to all my family and friends!
