My professors don't know how to work Zoom and I have not learned a single thing, Aunt Sharon.

Sweatpants are acceptable attire this year

No need to look good when you're only traveling to the kitchen and dining room for the day.

No awkward encounters with those relatives you barely know

Let's keep our mouths filled with food, not arguments, for this Thanksgiving.

You won't be forced to eat that suspicious side dish your aunt always brings

Giphy

There may be a smaller selection of sides this year, but at least you'll where they all came from.

The couch can double as the dinner table this year

Giphy

Keep it traditional if you want, but also don't feel bad for prioritizing comfort.

Lastly, you'll be keeping your family safe so you can all celebrate future holidays to come

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,

Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."
