Flying High

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.

    As a son, I can tell you that you are not and will not be a burden. My mother always said the same thing, “I don’t want to be a burden to you boys”, the burden is not spending time with our mother and the only burden is carrying your suitcase to your room. I’m sure that your son’s are like me, I was lot bigger burden to my mother than she will ever be to me.

    Thank you so much for your kind words and it was an awesome time with my loving sons and families. I was treated like a “Princess” and loved every minute.
