The Best Thanksgiving
I want to first say Happy belated Thanksgiving to everybody and that I am truly grateful to have a family, friends, a home, clothing, food, necessities, and most importantly God The Father, Jesus The Son and The Holy Spirit for giving me life and being the most important part in my life. I had the best thanksgiving in my life for many reasons. My family and I would usually go to the Eastern Shore with my mom's side of the family. But this year was different. My family and I went to visit my good friend Chloe and her family in PA. Her family and my family have been great friends for over 20 years and they're like blood related to me. I had the best dinner. I had of course the classics: turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and cranberries. I also had sweet mashed potatoes, sauerkraut, and deviled eggs. All of them were great, but the dish that stood out was the mashed potatoes because the texture, ingredients, and taste took it to a whole new level. For dessert, I had a healthy Irish cake called Pavlova. It has flour, eggs, and thats all I know, plus fruit toppings. I also had chocolate-covered blueberries and a brownie my sisters made where it's brownie, oreos and chocolate chip cookie dough all in one!!!! After the desserts, I went out to a campfire with my dad and his friends there and one of my dad's buddies, Fr. Bill Hodson, who is also another friend to my family, made African chocolate coffee. It was brewed the classic way with a fire and a pot. Then later, my whole family and everyone else talked about fascinating topics. They are birth stones, constellations, Biblical passages, musical pitches, pyramids, and many more subjects that went on for about 2 hours. After that, we exchanged hugs to each other and left at quarter of 2 in the morning, which its unusual. I never wanted to leave because I felt that the party isn't over, same thought as my family. Then Friday, my friend Chloe came to my house to stay for the whole weekend. The weekend was fun too. I had another great dinner, which was almost the same but with the inclusion of scalloped potatoes that my oldest sister made. After dinner, I went to my room to get music going, and I'm working on a new song titled "Unashamed". I got I would say 60% done guitar-wise. It's very anthemic, and it has Pantera, Lamb Of God, Demon Hunter and Mark Tremonti influences. I have to write my solo, then two interludes, and my outro. I got alot more songs coming too. I cannot wait to get my band together. On saturday, I saw Life of Pi, and it was an amazing, thought-provoking and spiritual movie for me. The character Pi had a huge adventure with a tiger and finding who God is. Alot of things were going on in the movie. I would suggest that to anybody. I also had a dance party that consisted everyone on the household and my neighbor/best friend Boz, who was the DJ. We played alot of dance/pop/techno/mainstream songs and some Christmas songs too. Everybody had a blast. Then on Sunday, it was GAME DAY, with my boys the Bmore Ravens at San Diego Chargers. I was disappointed at the first half because Joe Flacco, ravens quarterback, didnt really have his head in the game. Two hours later, it was 1:32 or something like that during overtime with the score 13 to 13, the ravens were at position to scoring a 38 yard field goal, and I was a little bit anxious to see if we would make the field goal, but our kicker Justin Tucker made a sign of the cross and made it and we luckily won the game 16 to 13. I was glad the Ravens won, but I think Joe Flacco needs major training and waking up. Sorry to all Chargers fans, including maybe As I Lay Dying because these guys are from San Diego, hahahaha. Overall, I couldn't ask for a better thanksgiving week . Thank you God The Father, Jesus The Son and The Holy Spirit for making this week memorable and for creating my family, friends and many other people that matter to me. Amazing.!!!!
