Thanksgiving is sometimes a hard holiday to celebrate away from family.
For me, that is definitely the case. I am used to 10-20 people in a room, sharing a meal together with people that I’ve known for my entire life.
This year, I was not able to go home for Thanksgiving as I’m from Nova Scotia. But, in a Quest-like fashion, it really didn’t bother me that I wasn’t able to return home as I have such amazing people surrounding me!
On Sunday I ended up having to work at my part time job as a waitress in Squamish until 5pm. Therefore, I was not home for most of the day. When I returned back to Quest that evening I came home to a lovely spread of food that my roommates had so thoughtfully prepared that day. They set up dinner music, candles and even decorated for the meal!
It was such a thoughtful, loving gesture that I couldn’t even miss being home because I realized that I have the most supportive and loving family right at Quest!
It is so nice to have the most amazing people surrounding me. <3
