A couple of years ago I had to go to the drug store. I asked the pharmacist what the long line was all about -- was there a flu epidemic? He laughed out loud and said no, it's Thanksgiving, everyone is lining up for their meds. When I cocked my head, he whispered, "You know -- meds, anti-anxiety, anti-depressants. It's that time of year."
I think while Thanksgiving is one of my most favorite holidays it doesn't always come at the best of times. Who can't empathize with the people in the long line at the pharmacy? Like many, I too more than once have wondered how we are going to make the holiday work for any number of reasons.
