Happy Thanksgiving....

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving.

I have a lot to be thankful for. A kind husband, beautiful daughters, a home, and that we do not lack anything or want much. And I am thankful for all of that and much more.

I wouldn't say that I'm sad. But the holidays are just so different. Actually it does make me sad for my daughters that there is no more going to Grandma's. No holiday celebrations at MeMe's house anymore. I was trying to remember the *last* Thanksgiving and I can't. I had to go back and look to see what we did. I do know that my Mom pulled her usual eat and run routine. They came here, ate, and were gone by 12:30. There was nothing all that memorable about the day so it is jumbled up with all the others. We didn't know at the time, but it was the last Thanksgiving there would be six of us at the table. Now there's only five.

I did make my Mom's broccoli, cheese, and rice casserole today. It came out pretty good and I think she'd be proud. We will spend the day with friends. I will put on my happy face and it will be a good day.

It just won't ever be the same.
