So this week is supposed to be my post Thanksgiving Mamavation Monday post
where I tell you that I did not overeat, that my oil-less deep fried turkey was a hit,
and that no one complained too much about the flop that was my organic green
bean casserole. However, I can only think of how fortunate I was to have my
Mom’s entire family (less one) gather from all areas of the country.
It is amazing to know that the distance that lies between each of us
does not lessen our love for one another. No one could have told me how
comforting these memories were going to be when things started to get rough.
No outsiders could have guessed that we all secretly knew this might be
the last time we would feel this complete as a family. So I thank God for this
Thanksgiving, this precious memory, and a reminder that I can draw from the
love and the support of loved ones near and far. Now if I could just find a way
to not forget these moments when things get tough…
