Nate Would Be Home Alone, on Thanksgiving

Our 28 year old grandson was destined to be home alone, on Thanksgiving. His friends said, "There's no way we're allowing this to happen, Nate!" They rounded up about six other fellas who didn't have any previous plans for the holiday. They all shared dinner together, at a pizza buffet. When Nate got off work, this 'gang' spent the entire evening together and they had a great time! Living in Salt Lake City, Utah has proven to be the best place Nate has ever lived. He has friends, friends and more friends! Photo: Nate wearing his new hat, a friend took this photo

When they first moved to Salt Lake City, I wondered it Nate would get homesick for Michigan. Nope, he's far too busy to feel lonely!

@kobesbuddy That's good, I have a grandson in Arizona that I thought the same about, but he loves it out there.

@Tina30219 When my friend Diane moved away, I felt lost going through school without her friendship!

He works for Delta Airline. So he couldn't fly to Michigan, simply for a holiday weekend!

You have a good-looking son. It's good he was able to spend time with friends. I've been to Salt Lake City before and from what I saw it was a peaceful community. The streets were sparkling clean and everyone was courteous.

@kobesbuddy I read your entire discussion. I apologize for the mistake. It just registered in my mind that it was your son.

Nice photo of Nate. I love the hat. I am glad he has so many friends that care about him. Personally, I am glad Thanksgiving is now over and so onto the Christmas holidays. I spent all of Thanksgiving watching old Thanksgiving Day Parades from NYC on YouTube and for Christmas, I guess I will watch a lot of Christmas movies.

I was relieved when Thanksgiving ended. I don't look forward to Christmas, even though this mood might improve. Christmas used to be a big deal, when my children lived at home. Now, I don't look forward to this festivity, it's far too commercialized and the birth of Jesus Christ gets ignored.

@kobesbuddy We all need support; sometimes more than others. What a kind father you had.

When I was going through deep depression, my father took me under his wing. Thus, I didn't give up.

It really does look like beautiful country there. It is wonderful that he has such sincere and caring friends, that means alot especially when he is so far from his family.

I was concerned about Nate being alone. His mother said, "Mom, that's not the case, he has lots of friends!"
