What It Was

Well, as the first major holiday after losing Owen, thanksgiving was okay, I guess. There was lots of good food, mostly good family, and a few sad moments. I did host thanksgiving dinner at our house and so managed to stay busy enough that I wasn't constantly thinking about how the day should have been. I'm glad its over though. The holidays feel like one more thing I need to survive in order to learn how to live without Owen.

I know exactly what you mean. I really thought that I would be alright on Thanksgiving, and it was really hard for me!

Hope you're feeling better now.

i thought thanksgiving would be another one of those things i thought was too obvious to suck, but it was really, REALLY bad. i blame it on the fact that losing paige is really making me look long and hard at the sh*t my mother has done.
just in time for christmas!

It was my turn to do Christmas this year but I passed it on to my big brother... As much as I know it would be good to keep busy with the cooking and entertainig what if it's soo bad I can't do it, I end up crying all over the mashed potato's...

I buried Micah the Friday of our Canadian Thanksgiving weekend..Needless to say it's a blur... Christmas will be my first Holiday and I already know it's going to suck.. I had planned on dressing Micah in a baby santa suit (w/o the beard of couse)...CUTE!!
