This might be a rough time for many of you. Do what you feel you need to do to get through it. Remember, someone is here almost all the time to talk to you.

I didn,t set Bob a place...but the dinner and company was great..Melinda did EVERYTHING...cleaned one day, cooked all day yesterday...but the big thing...this new house finally began to feel like my HOME.
Mary Jane we always have a place for Greg in his normal place, after holiday dinner is over I remove the setting and anyone can sit there then
Mary Jane ... No apologies needed. I know you have a lot going on and I hope things calm down for you soon and 2020 is a great year for you. So sorry to hear you are having so many issues happening at once.
Love ya back!
Sarah ... I am praying your back is getting much better. It's easy to sprain yourself. I've been washing walls in the living room and painting and my back hurts also, but it's my mind saying 'yup you can do it' and my body protesting. LOL I wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving and you seem to have a great attitude about moving forward although you will never forget Ken. I'm doing the same thing and trying to be thankful with what I have and the people in my life and this family here has been a lifeline to me as well.
Mary Jane ... I would speak with your daughter first. We sometimes forget that others that new our spouses and especially in your case, father, it could upset some people. If your daughter is OK with it then set a place setting on the side of the table and not at the head of the table. Hope this helps and have a wonderful dinner.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO MY AMERICAN FAMILY! I WISH YOU PEACE, JOY AND GOOD EATINGS!
LOVE YOU ALL
Happy Thanksgiving to my Legacy family. May your day be filled with peace and good food!
Oh Sara.that was a lovely post.I will pray for strength for your back. When backs get bad, it effects every other part of the body. I know that “old lady shuffle”. I wish you a pain free wonderful day.God bless you, and everyone else here.
This might seem weird, and it is just a thought, but here goes. I am hosting Thanksgiving for the first time in over 10 years. My daughter, her hubby and his parents r coming..and I just thought of creating a place setting for Bob. My table seats 6...probably won,t do it..but I might. Thanksgiving was his favorite holiday..above all others. He HATED Christmas, didn,t care about his birthday, but LOVED Thanksgiving. I have missed him in this new home..I can feel him so,Times, but not as strong as I did.
Oh well..time to,start cooking. And watch the PARADE!
Happy Thanksgiving to my Legacy family. I wish you all peace. Today I choose to focus on what I still have and am grateful for. I know that's what Ken would want me to do.
Chuck....that was quite a story. On this Thanksgiving day, I'm grateful you weren't more seriously injured. To be honest, I thought with your title of "My Scary Halloween", you were going to tell us a story of how you saw Larry as you were putting your display together.
Mary Jane.....How scary those wildfires are even just to see in the news. I'm grateful you and your family were safe during the worst of it and that you had a home to go back to.
I myself have been dealing with back issues the past couple weeks which got worse this past weekend. I had herniated a disc in 2015 and I think it happened again but my doc thinks it's just a muscle injury/strain. I hope she's right but in the meantime, I feel like a 90 yr old shuffling around. I guess for today, I'm grateful to be standing on my own 2 feet however difficult that may be.
Again, I hope you all enjoy your day but let's not "go dark" for quite so long. This site is a lifeline for us all.
