The Day After

I wrote a blog the other day that wasn't very nice so I am glad I kept in the edit box. It was all about what I wasn't thankful for this year. All the heartache and pain we as a family are feeling, the loss we feel, the memories that should be made at our house from now on and that aren't happening. You get it. But then I read another blog on all the things I should be thankful for. It did give me perspective and for a moment made me feel bad for being a "Debbie Downer". Then at lunch yesterday, my step-mom made each of say one thing we were thankful for and I yes had to think about it! But I gave an answer and we moved along.

All night, I thought about that game. Here we are the day after, my heart still hurts, the memories of yesterday were not made, my faith is still lost, but I am reflecting today on the memories that were made. The true friends that I do have, and a family, as dysfunctional as we all might be, that would walk to the wherever and back for me, for the two beautiful children I have been blessed with, the husband who for whatever reason, puts up with me and never fails to say I Love You! For all of you I am thankful.

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
