How to Beat Thanksgiving Anxiety with the Family

DEAR READERS: Happy Thanksgiving! For those of you who have been with me over the years, you know how much I love this holiday.

It’s that time of year when family and loved ones gather just to be together. For me, it’s also the time of year my daughter was born. Believe it or not, I started writing this column before she was born. This year, this week, she turns 19. She voted for the first time and is in college. This family reunion will be very special because we will see you for the first time in a long time.

Family. For me, family is everything. Family is my heart. My life. my happiness. Also, my irritation. My button pushers. My judgment. Family is everything.

The family represents both people whose blood we share and those we consciously invite into the covenant: people we anoint as family. Since I’m feeling extra-sentimental right now, I invite you to do the same.
