Here I am with my husbands family. We are at his sisters house-the one who recently got remarried...and I don't know but I'd bet half and half that she still resents me for what I did. Her hugs aren't the same anymore. But anyway as I was saying were at her house for thanksgiving and everyone is here except for their mother who lost her fight with cancer 5 years ago on the 4th of Nov. now I am missing her like crazy bcuz I'm always hearing what a great person she was. Everyone loves one another and I couldn't help but to recall how we are my mom and sister are and everything. I really messed up when I turned him in and I can't stop berating myself over it. I don't honk my husband fully understands y I keep pushing him to see and visit his sisters and reconnect with his brother but he refuses to. And it makes me so sad to know he has a dad and sisters that love him and me. I would give anything to see my dad. Either one. So I have to take my 'happy pills' just to get thru this week. Well I have to go mingle now so have a great thanksgiving and a safe one too!

Be thankful for the family you do have and for the things you have in your life. Give thanks this Thanksgiving that you are spending it with family. Also 2013 is almost here so new year new way of life and being happy for what you have and trying to appreciate the family you are with. Have a happy Thanksgiving.

The ultimate purpose of Thanksgiving is to be grateful and thankful of what you have right? So, no matter what difference you had with your sister - in - law, let it be the past. Re - connect with your family, and be thankful for this holiday. Now, sounds like you gonna have a great party at her house. Enjoy it.

There were ppl sitting on the floor and at the island she has in her kitchen it was fun! And ur right! I should and am very grate for many things and family is #1! Not that I needed it but thanks for reminding me! What was I thinking? Hehe!

Whatever it is that you did is past. We don't need to dwell on our past so we can move on and face the bright future ahead of us. I know that you're doing well as a mother, a wife, and a friend to those who know you well. I am happy for you that you've found something that can keep you while with your husband's family. Just enjoy and have a great day ahead.
