Happy Thanksgiving, from all of us at The NotMom. This is my own story for Thanksgiving 2017
First, I confess to being in a bit of a funk the week before Thanksgiving. Andy and I will share a lazy day with our own traditions: watch the parade and cook a traditional holiday meal for two, including pumpkin pie. What I can't control are unsolicited memories of our house filled to the edges with family and friends celebrating Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve. It's messing with my holiday joy. Those mental movies, and the fact that those folks are long gone or far away hurts all the time in the background of my life. But, grief shines best during end-of-year holidays..
It's not that I don't have a lengthy list of things to be thankful for this year (and every year). I surely do. And yet.
Pity party for one, please.
