Holidays should be like the Hallmark cable channel with a happy ending. Thanksgiving should be the fantasy of family coming together and celebrating.

A best friend doesn’t have to be a blood relative. A trusted person may have different DNA. The definition of family can be wider than those sharing the same genetics. They can even have four legs.
For every heartbreak, there can be the wonder of people who have happened into our lives but are not unnoticed and this is always a cause for celebration.
