When I see those thanksgiving adverts I just want to spit. Perfect families, perfect turkeys, Martha Stewart lives on steroids. It's all about the napkins, the appetizers and the right choice of wine. This thanksgiving I'll be living it up with the beans I got from my food stamps. I guess I can't feel any worse than an orphan on mother's day, but it still sucks.

It's not about the turkey for me, or the stuffing, or even the roast potatoes. Don't get me wrong, I love all that stuff and thanksgiving wouldn't be the same without it. But a holiday that's all about getting the family together, being thankful for all that we have; each other, our home and the food we eat. Being able to sit around the table, all of us together and thank God, that's just magic to me. It's a holiday when we just kick back and celebrate how wonderful our ordinary lives are.
