This week is Thanksgiving. Filled with great food, family and tradition, a lot of people enjoy a few day off of work. Some, though, work like crazy! (Can you say retail and restaurant workers?) Don't get me started on these stores opening at crazy early hours and now, they are opening on Thanksgiving Day. That's another subject for another post.
But, back to my title, Thankful Yet Sad. I do have so much to be thankful for. My great family for one!
Picture: Hubby, kids, their spouses and my grandchildren.
I also have a huge extended family, and I love getting together with them. We see some on Thanksgiving Day, we see others the Saturday after Thanksgiving, where it has become tradition to gather at our house for a day of fun, food, family and football.
Okay, for the sadness part, my boy-child and his wife, pictured below, moved to Chicago earlier this year and they aren't able to make it back to the ATL for Thanksgiving. (boo-sniff--me crying!)
They are planning their very first dinner--and I know they are having fun together. We will miss them, though!
How about you? Traditions? Happy stuff going on? Some sad emotions as well? We'd love to hear what your Thanksgiving is going to look like this year.
