The Season Of Gathering
The holiday season has arrived. And I must say, Thanksgiving is my personal favorite. Why? That's simple: it revolves around food, family, fun and great conversations!
I used to look forward to going home to Washington, DC to be with my parents. The football games, the walks in the park, the laughter and, yes, even some of our more high-pitched political discussions -- I treasured it all.
For me, the holidays are about slowing down, being with my family and friends, and hearing what they are thinking about and reflecting on.
At the same time, I don't have to remind anyone that the holidays can also be really stressful. We all have our own worries -- about what to make, where to go, how to make it work for everyone.
As we approach this Thanksgiving week and the true beginning of the holiday season, let us gather together and empower each other with our stories.
Tell us: what is your favorite part of the holidays? Have any worries? What are you going to be talking about at your table this year? Do you have any family rules that keep conversations from getting out of control? Join the conversation.
