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)) m 89 days ago
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 there....so much for the kindness of siblings. #5 and # 3 were always the ones the rest of us had/have difficulties with...mom'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.
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 Ginie
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?
