24 In Holidays

Thankful

It’s that time of year to be thankful. And this year, we have a lot more to be thankful for than I could have ever imagined.

We got our wedding video back this week. It came almost six months to the day after we got married, but it was so worth the wait.

Yesterday we spent time watching our ketubah signing and ceremony. The whole thing was better than I remembered. Our rabbi incorporated language familiar to Christian viewers, our charge reflected our story. We stood under the chuppah because we loved each other and at the end of the day if we have each other we’ll be able to get through anything. I am so thankful that we’re able to have that reflection and reminder.

This year, we’ll be spending our Thanksgiving at a restaurant. Which is weird for us. It’s something we’ve never done.

                                                   not your traditional Thanksgiving feast 

We’re away from our families and it’s just us, so I wasn’t going to make a full meal for just us two.

Part of being interfaith has been creating our own traditions. Maybe, for now, this will be one of ours. We are working towards building our own foundation and traditions and in many ways building our own family. I’m thankful that we have the opportunity to create our own lives.

I consider us lucky to have families that are willing to support and learn with us. No matter what they have never stopped learning with us. I am thankful for them.

I am thankful for J, who is so generous to others. He is so supportive of everyone. No matter the schedule J makes sure to show up at any event for family or friends. He stands up for what’s right always. I am always proud of him.

In truth, I am so thankful that we are an interfaith couple. It has challenged us, given us opportunities to learn and allowed us to explore ourselves. Plus, we’ve never had to argue about where to spend each holiday!

I hope all of your Thanksgivings are full of gratitude, love, and friendship.
