Thanksgiving Done Untraditionally

My Thanksgiving post is a day late because yesterday was a tough day. Although it was our second Thanksgiving away from the Burgh, it was the first without my oldest son. He is an adult, and when we relocated, he stayed behind. Days are getting a little easier being away from him and our other family, but Holidays and special occasions are still difficult.

My husband, our younger son and daughter and I had a quiet day at home. We originally had reservations for Thanksgiving dinner, but the boy was sick and we stayed in. We didn't have any of the fixings for a Thanksgiving meal and ended up ordering Denny's. Was a nice impromptu meal. 

I have many things to be thankful for. I have a wonderful husband who works hard to provide for our family. I have 3 healthy children. I have many family members and friends who keep me going despite the miles and miles between us. And, even though it displaced us from all we knew, I am thankful for our move as it has provided us with opportunities, events and experiences we wouldn't have had otherwise! 

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving!
