It’s been too long since I spent Thanksgiving day with my family and it isn’t the same when you aren’t in some of their company. Living in a different state doesn’t help especially that I don’t handle the cold well any more. My breathing problems escalate and I feel like a burden to my sons but this year my heart begged me to at least try to and maybe the weather will be bearable. I know once I see my wonderful son and his family I will feel the love I have missed.
Within this short visit my son Terry will be driving in to see me and so will my sister and brother with their respective spouses. So at least I will see some of my family. If it weren’t for Black Friday the rest of my family would probably be here too, but I am thankful for the ones that can make it.
In past years I hosted the feast on Thanksgiving and I still miss the hustle and bustle of getting it all together. If I may pat myself on the back, I did do a great job with the cooking and serving. My nieces always helped with the clean up and hand washing of the dishes. Gee, those were the days and I sure do miss them. But now I get to enjoy my son preparing a feast along with his wife for me and fourteen others. It is going to be a fun time and I am so very excited. Happy Thanksgiving day to all of you.
