There is no other family like my family. that is why Thanksgiving is the most sacred family tradition in my family. It is filled with fun, laughter, and plenty of scrumptious food. Thanksgiving for my family, is an all day event, and can get hectic at times. I day starts off with an early morning breakfast cooked by my father.
Despite their differences in these holidays, they are also similar in various ways. For example, during both these holidays we are set off from work and school to relax, which is the Thanksgiving break, and the winter break. My family all unite at my grandmother 's house, each bringing a dish to share. For example, in Thanksgiving, my mom sometimes makes the ham, my aunt brings the turkey while others bring mashed potatoes and corn. As for Christmas a feast is also being made as we all gather around bringing different varieties of dishes such as tamales, and posole.
Chivalry is doing the right thing for the right reason at the right time. My mom never fails to show me the power of chivalry. Although there are many virtues my mother displays, faith, generosity, and courage are three that I notice the most. From little things like making me breakfast before school to taking me on shopping trips, my mom shows me how much she cares. Family is very important to my mom and I. I have an older brother who can get on my last nerve sometimes, but thankfully my mom is always there to make us best friends again.

She loved cooking the old style foods that they served at the Old Style Inn. During one of Mary’s recent visits she realizes “The eatery menus or dishes that aren’t too common on restaurant menus now days” (Valadez, 2).

Greetings everyone, I hope you all enjoying this fall weather and are excited that it is Spirit Week! On Friday 11/3/17 from 10:30-12:30 we will be having Chicken Waffle Grill on campus to raise money for the students. From the feedback that was provided I was able to make changes for the last event. I have attached a copy of the menu and their prices for you to share with your students. Rita was able to create some flyers that can be posted in your room about Chicken Waffle Grill.
(I usually win because she attempts to hold onto the sides causing the meat and potatoes to come squirting out the back.) Whether our group consists of just four or has twelve, the meal ceaselessly proves to be enjoyable. In my family, the menus for Christmas and Thanksgiving are never the same. However, St. Patrick 's Day is consistent.
We have our Asian inspired dishes that are symbols of good luck, so even though I do not like to eat the daunting black beans, I brave through the bite in order to have a good year. Also, my grandmother would always make turkey because it reminds us of Thanksgiving, and it shows my grandmother’s way of thanking God for the amazing year that we had. I feel the importance of having every single ounce of food with meaning behind it, and this phenomenon has been ingrained into my own culture.
As soon as we arrived, my father was ready to order. He always eats the same meal of steak fries, ribs covered with a thick, sugary barbecue sauce, and a tub of cole slaw swimming in mayonnaise. Of course, flaky biscuits shiny with grease come with this meal. My father teased me when I choose to eat a few items from the salad bar.
My uncle was near by and heard the shot and came over to help. I learned a lot that day about how to properly field dress, and process the deer. Once we go the deer home, we made homemade sausages, steaks, burger, and jerky. My personal favorite is the burger. My Dad makes amazing chili out of it.
Participating in this experience allows me to be able to see how important certain aspects of the holidays are to everyone. When working with clients, they may be fortunate to have all of their loved one’s with them, and their most important part of Thanksgiving is making sure that the turkey is cooked perfectly. For a client with a disability, it can be hard to make a holiday meal perfect, because they often feel held back my their disability. Experiencing this Thanksgiving meal with my family showed that while something may be effecting the day, a holiday can be as perfect as it can be, with the love and support of others. So, as an occupational therapist, I will make sure to help enforce the knowledge of values, and that to use inner strength to keep
Its just one of my goals to give back to them especially my mom because of all the things she went through and wants me to be a better man when I’m older. Overall I praise my mom because she has to put up with me even though we have some bad agreements at times but at the end of the day I love her no matter what because she is doing all this for my sister and I. She is an amazing woman and I am thankful to have her as a mom because of all the things she has done for me and I hope later on when I get my degree I would make her proud. I also praise her for all the things she has overcome like the war that went on in here country, making it to the US so we could have a better life, and for being an amazing mother that I love no matter
The book, “Outliers” Malcolm Gladwell discusses the effect of relationships in the introduction. What would be the key component in sustaining a healthy life? The “Roseto Mystery” solves the question of why the people of Roseto were reported of rarely having heart disease under the age of 65. Their diet had no correlation to the healthy life they lived, but was caused by the effects of the close community relationships. Connecting to relationships, personally in my life I have been affected by positive relationships.
If you go more than three generations up in your ancestral line, you no longer share any blood similarities with your. This is due to the dna mixing and different family genes, so it makes sense that our ancestors are very different then us. Me being a caucasian female living Hawaii changed my life a lot more then it would have if I stayed in Canada. I never really thought I had a culture, my family says I'm a mixed plate. That always confused me because my skin is white and I grew up in Hawaii, so I just assumed I was just another hole.
I wouldn't be the person I am today without the experiences and where I come from. It all started from where I was born. I was born in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti on January 22nd 1995. Haiti is located in the Caribbean, and there we speak two languages fluently, Creole and French. All my family from both my mother’s and my father's side we all come from Haiti.
I am a result of my family, faith, and educational experiences around the world and across the country. Throughout my entire life I have lived and travelled to many different parts of the world and from that my education and experiences from my time in England and Europe, Arizona, and in South Carolina have shaped my into the person I am today and helped me figure out the type of person I want to strive to be in the future. Before I had even begun my primary years in education I had already moved from South Carolina to Georgia and over to Colorado, but the biggest change came when my family and I moved across the Atlantic Ocean to England. I started my education in a small village primary school affiliated with the local church, which influenced the curriculum and teaching methods contrasting the practices of the American education system. Another unique view impressed on me early in my education was that the STEM approach to education did not create a well-rounded student that would be an innovator and beneficial member of society and the university route was not the only means to make a future.
