There have been many times in the 10 years that Tom and I have been married that one of us had to miss all or part of a holiday and quite a few times it was Thanksgiving. It is not fun, but it is a part of life that many people have to live with. I know many times where Tom and I would bring food to the service members who were working on the gates on Thanksgiving after he got home from work, so they would be able to have a warm Thanksgiving meal while they were working.
Being at work on a day when many others are celebrating with their families, because the job they do is to protect us is just one of the many sacrifices that those who are our police, military and firefighters (along with other jobs) make.Wouldn’t it be nice for them to have a meal brought to them that they can enjoy? Especially since many of the quick drive thru places are not open, and let’s face it, no one really wants to eat a burger for Thanksgiving dinner.
