A TOUGH DAY
Thursday, November 25, 2010
Thanksgiving Day, my how things have changed. It used to be that on this day my home would be filled with family and loved ones, fast forward to today and a dinner out with my son and daughter-in-law, it just didn't seem right. Don't get me wrong, I am thankful for the time my DH and I got to spend with them, but I miss the rest of the family that has scattered to different areas and now have families of their own that they celebrate with.
Then to make matters worse my dear friend passed away on Monday night. She battled cancer for 19 years and she finally lost the fight. I know she is in a good place now, free from pain, but I already miss her so I can't stand it. We are having a big Red Hat event next Saturday so I made this collage in her memory to display on a table. It gave me some closure in doing this and I know she would have liked it.
I know I have so much to be thankful for, this is just a little bump in the road for now.
