Thanksgiving Past and Present
Thanksgiving. Somedays it is harder to be thankful for things. This year there were many changes and ups and downs.
Optimism and thankfulness are challenging to navigate in the disability community. Thanksgiving can be challenging for some who cannot travel to see their family. Many friends become family or Thanksgiving is spent with a personal care attendant. I have been lucky enough to have family close by and friends willing to accommodate me. I still deal with people asking if I can “just walk up a few steps”…no, just no.
How do you deal with inaccessible Thanksgiving festivities? Do you cook at home with family or aides? Do you go out and eat at a restaurant or is thanksgiving not part of your holidays? What are you thankful for this year?
