Awkward & Thankful

This Thanksgiving things are different.
This feels different without you here.
You were our rock. The family cornerstone.
And we’re all a little lost without you.
Thanksgiving feels a little clumsy and we’re not quite sure what this looks like without you here.

But, you are here.
You are here in your granddaughter’s eyes.
You are in your son’s latest opinion. :)
You are in the gravy and your favorite chocolate pie.
But most importantly, you are in our hearts.

Thanksgiving feels awkward. But we’re determined to live life.
To let it be full, as much as we can without you here.
And we will remember.
We will be thankful.
For every moment we had with you here.
And for every moment we have together.

This Thanksgiving, embrace all things family. Play cards. Eat Aunt Gertrude’s pie cause damn it, it will make her happy! You never know when it will be your last Thanksgiving with the people you love. Cherish these moments because it’s these moments that make life so sweet.
