Thanksgiving in Massachusetts
Wednesday, November 24, 2010
This year has been an especially difficult one for my family. My wife has been out of work for 2 years and during the summer took a very low paying in home job. We support a big family in a big home that costs a lot of money to run. As you can imagine it has been tough on our relationship. I can shamefully say I haven't been the most supportive. My mother-in-law and laid-off brother-in-law live with us. So I often feel this financial burden is unfair. However, I love my wife dearly and she is dedicated to taking care of all her family members.
However, this Thanksgiving I have much to be thankful for. My wife recently fell into her dream job in the wine industry. For the first time in 2 years she is excited beyond belief. While its not a whole lot of money it makes her happy. And that makes me happy.
