Power of Thanksgiving
Small cheer and great welcome makes a merry feast
A time to hang out with family and friends. I love thanksgiving and it is one of my favorite holidays. Every thanksgiving I and my family go to church to give food to the homeless then we go to my cousins house to hangout and chomp on amazing food. At the end of thanksgiving we are always bloated with food, and we end the day by either spending 30 minutes in the bathroom, or just going on a full out snooze fest. What I love most about my thanksgiving is the fact that there’s a schedule that we do every year, and this year was no different. It was a cold snowy day in Lowell Massachusetts, I woke up feeling very happy because I knew today was gonna be a good day. I did all my chores and then I headed to church happily even though I was running on a hungry stomach because I knew what today held for me. I arrived at church at around 10:15, got my gloves and I was ready to serve. The menu is always the same but the importance of this day and the people we serve are always different. My job was to serve the mash potatoes. What I love most about this job is the reaction on people’s faces when I give them the food, and also just knowing that I am helping people who are less fortunate than me. After serving the mash potatoes, I was able to do my favorite job which is giving out the pie. I love this job. Because it’s so hectic, as pie is a fan favorite. For some reason when I’m giving out the pie I feel like I’m an actual waiter, and I’m always screaming “get your pies” “free pies” “take em or leave em”. It’s so much fun. When I’m done giving out food to the homeless, I go to my cousins house to have a meal of my own. This is always a great way to end my thanksgiving because I get to spend time with the people who I love and who I’m thankful for. Thanksgiving is always a holiday that I look forward too, and I can’t wait for this years thanksgiving to happen.
