We didn't really celebrate Thanksgiving here. Mom made a really nice pecan pie and we had turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy... but it's not the same. Thanksgiving's always been a time for lots of people to get together, and get *along* for one day. Last year was great. We had a bunch of dad's Japanese friends over so I got to chat in Japanese over dinner. I think Tomoe (dad's wife now) was there, but I can't remember.
Anyway, this year I am thankful, beyond thankful, that I get to go home.
