To be honest. I'm having a hard time being thankful tonight.
Tomorrow will be the first of many Thanksgivings with out option of spending it with my Mom. To me this is a powerfully sad realization. I am thankful to get to at least spend it with my Dad and Stepmother in Salem.
I know people that have strained relationships with their parents, and who won't be seeing them this year for various reasons. This breaks my heart and frustrates me. It isn't fair to anyone involved in most of those situations. I wish for them it was different because someone told me this time is about spending with family I countered with "its about more than that" and that was rebutted quite effectively and promptly and changed my mind.
I know tomorrow is going to be hard for a lot of people for a lot of reasons. My heart goes out to them.Posted by Ben at November 23, 2011 10:00 PM
