Thanksgiving in Ireland

December 12th, 2015 | Uncategorized

I always miss my family this time of year, the past three years due to basketball commitments I have had to spend it apart from them. And this would be the first year in a while that I didn’t get to spend it with my second family, the Frasers and Mary Margaret’s world famous sweet potato casserole.


Being a kid who has always loved food my biggest worry was that we wouldn’t have turkey. Thankfully it all worked out, I had a great night with my Sport Changes Life family in Belfast…..and yes turkey was served. I would have to say the best part of the night was when Marc surprised us with videos from home. It was extremely comforting to see the faces of my beautiful family on one of the biggest family days of the year. I would not be here without their support and on a day where Americans reflect on what they are thankful for I was most thankful for them in that moment.
