cathy Posted November 26, 2003 Share Posted November 26, 2003 For those of you who have not been having very good days lately and dont feel good at all, I hope tomorrow is better for you and you can somehow enjoy the day. For those who have family members battling this horrible disease also try to enjoy the day. Your loved one would want you to. For those of us going through our first holiday without our precious loved one, This is what my son said when I told him I was not going to have Thanksgiving. He sent me an e-mail because he is away at college. Even though PAPA will not be here in person I know he will be watching. I know he would want us to celebrate like we do everyyear. He said having thanksgiving without him will be painful but ignoring it and letting it pass is not part of a viable mourning process. WE have to maintain our traditions, when we alter them they no longer remain traditions. Losing someone we all loved dearly will have an everlasting effect on our family, and in a sense can weaken our family structure, however nothing can weaken our family bond and by sticking together and maintaining tradition we strengthen that bond every year. Just wanted to share some of his words words with those who are struggling with the holiday as I am. It helped me maybe it will help you. Also thought you might want to know I am cooking tomorrow. HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
