Mom, this is my first Thanksgiving without you here with me. My heart hurts knowing that you are not here with me, but I know that you are having the Greatest Thanksgiving in Heaven.
I Love You

WHAT IS THANKSGIVING? WHAT DO WE ALL HAVE TO BE THANKFUL FOR? CHARISH THE FAMILY THAT YOU HAVE LEFT. PRAISE GOD FOR THE FOOD ON THE TABLE, THE ROOF OVER YOUR HEAD, THE PHONE CALLS TO AND FROM FRIENDS.
IF YOU ARE GOING TO BE ALONE THIS THANKSGIVING, DO SOMETHING SPECIAL FOR YOURSELF OR FOR YOUR FURBABIES. I PLAN TO PAMPER MY FOUR FURBABIES ON THANKSGIVING TO SHOW THEM MUCH LOVE AND SUPPORT THAT THEY GIVE MY ALL YEAR LONG. THEY DO NOT ASK FOR ANYTHING ELSE. I PLAN TO SPEND SPECIAL TIME WITH EACH ONE DURING THE DAY AND WE WILL SIT AND WATCH THE PARADE AND THEY EACH WILL GET A GOOD BATH WITH LOTS OF LOVE IN THAT BATH.
THANKSGIVING IS NOT ALL ABOUT COOKING 12 HOURS THAT DAY OR TRYING TO FIND A PLACE THAT IS OPEN TO SERVE LUNCH. THANKSGIVING IS TO STOP AND REFLECT ON WHAT "YOU" HAVE TO BE THANKFUL FOR.
