    Marty How are you, I am so sorry I did not remember too well.
    We had a good day and the family downstairs our youngest son DIL and 13 year old grand daughter. They all chipped in and there were just 5 of us and it was nice. A very nice Thanksgiving, Pat in Maine expecting a little snow. (((HUGS)) emoticon m emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Mom had two miscarriages that I was aware of, one between number 4 and 5. When my sister (#5) would feel sorry for herself we reminded her that if the twins survived she wouldn't even be much for the kindness of siblings. #5 and # 3 were always the ones the rest of us had/have difficulties's "favorites" had health issues and were very spoiled.
    Her other miscarriage was when my father was out of town on business and I was about 15-it was rough on her and on me....I was helping her and caring for the little ones. Mom had me a 3 months before her 30th birthday and as I said I was the first of the 10 all of which were single births. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    You know I have my scream/cry time also. I've figured out I shouldn't do it while walking it disturbs a few of my neighbors who don't know what to do to help me. Frankly they could take Erik for 4-10 hours once in a while and that would help.
    But you and I have much to be thankful for inspite of little aggravations-or big ones for that matter.
    Love and prayers

    Marty, yesterday was my cranky day. After Erik apologized for verbally pushing and correcting I tried to really let it go. I know it's part of his brain injury but sometimes I want to scream. I vented to some of the therapist that know him but weren't with him and did some knitting. Then I put parameters on what I would/could do for him as I spent all of Monday, Tuesday and Thursday with him and tried to make sure we were out and about for a bit.
    Now to pull myself together and enjoy his day with his helper, God willing she makes it.
    Hope you are doing well. What are your plans for Thanksgiving? emoticon emoticon emoticon
