~Thanksgiving Is A Tough One~
November 24, 2016 11:26am CST
Thanksgiving is a tough day in our family. My husband's father died on Thanksgiving day 10 years ago. I won't ever forget that day. When my husband's sister in law called, my husband lost control over his emotions. It was a really hard day for me to see my husband like that. He was so devastated, naturally. I held him while he cried for hours. My husband still has a tough time on this day every year. So...we're doing what he wants to do today and staying home with our own family. We won't have turkey since we don't eat it but we will be grateful for our lives and our loved ones in it. Happy Thanksgiving my friends!

I'm sorry for his and your loss. My father in law passed unexpectedly one year the day before Valentines Day, and I used to see my husband struggle every year when he thought back to the year that he passed. So many words left unsaid, and so many regrets. I think that you've had a great week, you've made some wonderful artwork with your kids for Thanksgiving and being grateful and enjoying each other's company IS what this holiday is all about-not what, or how much, you eat. Enjoy!
