Thanksgiving 1982 was only my second Thanksgiving ever, but it was my last with my Grandmother (Grammy). I don’t remember the day at my Aunt Nancy’s new house, but these photos show that we were all happy. I especially love the photo of my grandparents above because I have never seen my Granddad smile like that. She must have been something special.
These photos are also interesting because today, in 2009, my parents are the same age as my grandparents’ in 1983. I am the same age as my parents’. And my nieces are the same age as me.
Today, I am thankful for my family. I am thankful that we have been blessed with full and happy lives in which opportunities are endless. I am thankful that we are a creative group even though it only shows in small doses. I am thankful for Nik, and am thankful that he will soon join this crazy family of mine.
With that, I leave you with a few more photos of Thanksgiving 1982. I hope you all have a wonderful day!
And here’s a photo of my grandmother in her dietitian’s uniform when she was 22:
