Thanksgiving is less than a week away and for those hosting the family gathering, the days before the main event are most likely spent running around to make sure everything is in order for the big day. Since this time is meant for being with family, for those who are unable to be at home due to work commitments, living out of state or other scenarios, the holiday may be a bit sad.
If one of your close relatives is unable to make the trek home for Thanksgiving, there are a few things you can do to let him or her know they're missed. A great way to offer support and love to a family member far away is to talk with the person on Thanksgiving. Technology such as Skype and FaceTime allow people to stay connected, face to face. Make time on November 22 to gather everyone around and call the loved one far away. Seeing everyone's faces is sure to help the relative feel like he or she is a part of the fun.
Another thoughtful way to show a relative you're thinking about them is to send Thanksgiving flowers their way. A fun collection like Teleflora's Sugar Maples fall bouquet is sure to bring some happiness to your loved one. The arrangement of chrysanthemums in an array of colors like bronze, yellow and green are offset by orange roses and lovely leaves and come in a terra-cotta pot, adding a rustic touch.
