Thanksgiving will always be special for me. It was the week my mom passed away 16 years ago. I dream of her from time to time. She's always in good spirits [no pun intended] and she is always talking. Although I can hear her in my dreams...I never remember what she said when I wake up. Frustrating.
I'm VERY grateful to have my dad who at 78 and with health problems, continues to amaze his doctors at how well he IS doing despite all his ailments [dialysis - valve replacement - agent orange...you go pops]!
To my friends Rudy and Patt who both lost their fathers this year -- one before Thanksgiving Day, one after, you're both in my prayers.
I give thanks to being able to be home with my dad and with family for the first real Christmas in 19 years. Amen!!
