Thankful Thursday : Passover Edition (9 April 2020)

It’s Holy Week for Jews and Gentiles. I usually go out for Passover, but last night I made my own and my parents agreed to join me. I made GF matzo ball soup, baked chicken, charoset and peas. It took me about 3 hours to make everything, and the holiday meal was loved by all.


I’m thankful to have a family that accepts me and is willing to join me in holidays as we have to temporarily change our habits. And they’re grateful that I sit in with their holidays. That’s how we handle a multi-faith family.

I’m sharing the two recipes with you. GF Matzah Ball Soup and Charoset.


Corporate at my full-time job has daily Zoom meetings for COVID-19 support and I’m grateful that yesterday they recognized all faiths and wished us all happy holidays. I’m grateful not only for that, but all the other support we give each other during these difficult times.

I’ve been keeping in touch with the library; we’re closed indefinitely, but we are still being compensated. I’m grateful that I’m still being compensated. Whenever I’m out walking, I see one of my co-workers and we just chat for a bit. Physical distance doesn’t effect our socialization.

What are you grateful for?

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    Happy Thankful Thursday, dear friend! It was nice of your parents to join you for this year’s Passover observance there at home. The pictures of smiling faces and good food tell the story. Your description of the menu has my mouth watering and the dishes you prepared look delicious. Thanks for sharing the recipes. You worked hard on the feast, but it was a labor of love and I’m sure your folks appreciated it. Your reciprocal arrangement with members of your multi-faith family is absolutely a resourceful plan. Families grow closer and stronger when members gather around a table, share a nice meal together and respect each other’s beliefs.

    I’m glad those Zoom meetings are going well and that people are reaching out to support one another. A crisis brings out the worst in some people, but I’d like to think it brings out the best in most of us.

    Take care, dear friend JM. I’ll be connecting with you again soon!
