Today I am missing those that I am most grateful for. My family. I ended up staying home so I don’t expose anyone to this “long lasting bug” I’ve had for over a month. So I’m alone and thinking about them. I’m glad they’re together at least.
I’m also grateful that I raised three really super kids. My youngest, Susie, is off to Baltimore today. Her friend’s mom died and the funeral is tomorrow but because of the holiday weekend, none of the extended family is attending the funeral so Susie’s friend was going to be alone for the funeral. Susie flew out to be with her so she wouldn’t be alone. She gave up her Thanksgiving to be with a friend in need. What a wonderful person I raised.
My son and daughter-in-law are hosting both families this year, again. And they will also have “orphans” that have no where to go for the holiday. They welcome them like family, with open arms. And Tina is picking up the stuff I was supposed to take but can’t because I’m staying home. She and her family were already in Tacoma when I decided it was best for everyone if I stayed home instead of going up to Seattle, otherwise she would have stayed home with me.
I’m glad Tina and Tony and their families are together today. I’m glad Susie is with her friend. And I am grateful that these amazing people came from me and are spreading their goodness to others.
Happy Thanksgiving to each of you and your families, whether you celebrate or not. May you have many things to be grateful for today and every day of the year.
