Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday and this was the roughest one I’ve had in the last several years for a few reasons, namely because this year was not mine to spend with my daughter. This was the first one I’ve not spent with her since she arrived on Earth and the emotional toll was one I’ve dreaded since the divorce papers were finalized. I did not underestimate its impact. So today, I want to express my gratitude to my family, especially my mother, stepfather, sister, brother-in-law, nephew, Charlie in my tummy and the Man who helped me make the feast today and kept my spirits up as I missed my favorite girl. Together is the best place to be and I am so thankful that we all could be that today.
