trying to see the humor in it..but to be immature for a moment,if you will, i'll state a few things that have made this the worst thanksgiving i've ever had.--fortunately i always celebrate twice- so tomorrow i trek to my dads,where thanksgiving may redeem itself,we hope.
my husband is not here
my phone broke [still can talk/text though thank jesus]
my son is still sick,thus whiny and won't eat/nurse much which concerns [only] me.so waking up early crying.
my sister and her fam can't be here [will see her tomorrow though!]
awful fight with my mom
my brother is now sick,keeps throwing up [must have got it from saylor]
started my period-which is huge because i haven't had one in over 4 years. [unless i was on birth control i didn't have them.so when we started trying to have a baby we had no idea if it would be difficult.saylor was meant to be here!]--but this to say i've had horrible cramps,my whole body is aching.
and a migraine
have a funeral on saturday [great uncle]
my husband is not here [it's worth saying twice] oh and found out minutes ago that he'll be home two days later than we thought.
so anything else random happening [my button fell off my black jacket again may reduce me to tears,or laughter depending.did spend some time with colin's family which was nice.back at my mom's. she made a huge meal only 4 people ate [my mentally handicapped uncle is here too] bless her.it is quiet here and this is unusual.most thanksgivings we've had friends over.so it's pretty bummer.but we have to laugh about it. i don't idealize thanksgiving or get all worked up about it, but i was excited for saylor to experience it and colin to get to go to my dad's house as he hasn't been to it yet [they moved two hours away a couple years ago]. well boo! or bah, or whatever.
but truly i am thankful for so much and despite absent people and lots of puke i feel so blessed and maybe even more aware of things i am grateful for.which is awesome because that means the enemy loses again and JESUS reigns in my heart.
