Hi Dottie, Thanks for asking about my Uncle. He did pass away and joined my Aunt in heaven. He sure gave cancer a run for it's money, I don't know how he lived so long with that terrible disease. Unfortunately my Mother in Law had been diagnosed with multiple myeloma (cancer of the bone marrow) as well as cancer of the bladder. She is a positive and strong woman and although the myeloma is not curable we are hoping to have her with us through out the holidays. Thanksgiving will be fun, her best friend from high school will be joining us and both are thrilled with being able to spend the day together. God Bless you and have a wonderful Thanksgiving 2501 days ago
Hi Our Thanksgiving will be different too. Our daughter and son-in-law and grandson weren't going to be able to drive the 5 hours because of work the next day, and I got the opportunity to go to Paris and Switzerland for almost 2 weeks for free, so this year ... for the first time ever, I won't be with my family. My son and husband will go out to Thanksgiving dinner for the first time. Part of me feels very guilty for accepting the trip, but then I realized that for once in my life, I should put my feelings first. While I will certainly miss them dearly on Thanksgiving, I need to take advantage of opportunities for myself now that I am a 55-year old grandmother, don't you think?
Old habits are hard to change though, and the guilty feeling hasn't completely gone away. 2502 days ago
