Happy Thanksgiving to all of my Canadian friends. We typically try to do our big meal on the weekend but instead I am going to be cooking it today. We have 5 others joining us for dinner tonight for turkey and all the fixins! I love the way the house smells when it's all cooking... and I love that we get the leftovers!
I am feeling rather blue today.... I had thought that this year would be easier, but I am missing my parents so much today. There is such a hole in my heart. I am thankful that I miss them so much because it means they meant a lot to me... I am just so sad that they are gone from my life. I miss seeing them, hearing them, being held by them. I truly find it difficult to feel thankful when I feel like this.... but I am thankful for a happy and healthy family, a wonderful husband, great friends, a supportive and loving extending family, a roof over our heads and food on our plates.
I love the card that I created for this week's sketch over at the Clean and Simple stamping blog... I hope you'll find a little time to play along with us this week!
