Where has 2016 gone? It just seems to have jetted by, except for the endless days of "politics"...lol! As much as I try (and usually with success) to live in the moment, Thanksgiving always brings with it a feeling of melancholy. I find myself missing those days of trying to stuff a turkey with a baby on my hip, creating all those wonderful foods to share with our family. I miss those days of "helping" to orchestrate that delicious meal while a grandchild slept on my lap. Yes, I miss those gatherings, but understand that lives change, and I must change with them in order to bring happiness into our home of "just the two of us." I am truly happy and very thankful for all that I have, knowing that the past, both the good and the not-so, have brought me to this day.
I wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving! If you are traveling, please travel safely.
Warm hugs to all,
