I can't believe that it is 2 days to Thanksgiving? Where did the year go?
This Thanksgiving and Christmas will be so different for us. My husband and I have always traveled home for the holidays to spend time with my husbands family. Each of us, brothers, sister, wives, husbands, Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren found our way to Mom's table to celebrate.
Dinner with Mom started with her saying a prayer and sharing communion with us. We toasted each other, we laughed, and over ate. We shared cooking and cleaning up together. Many had an after dinner nap.
Mom passed away a week after we celebrated Easter this past April. She was the glue that held us all together. Her house is cleaned out and listed for sale.
We are missing her.
Now each of our individual families are looking for ways to celebrate and to start new traditions. This Thanksgiving my husband and I are having dinner at a local Inn. Next year maybe we will be ready to celebrate differently.
