In two days it will be Thanksgiving and every year I look back and think about what I have to be thankful for. This year Thanksgiving takes on a whole different meaning. Even though Mom has been through so much the past several years, this year was different. I had to face the fact that she almost died. I had been with her every step of the way and seen some things I was not ready to handle. It has been a traumatic experience for me. Somehow I guess we manage to get through the tough times as hard as they are and it makes us stronger.

We will be having friends over for Thanksgiving who are going through a tough time as well as one of my friends who had nowhere to go. It’s times like these that makes you appreciate what you have.

I wanted to wish everyone and their families a wonderful Thanksgiving. I am very thankful I found a place to vent as well as find such great people who have been very helpful to me. I am very blessed.
