Happy Thanksgiving

I do have a lot to be thankful for, I do. I have three wonderful children, an awesome husband, perfect horses, playful dogs. We are in much better financial state then most Americans...


I miss my mom horribly and am in a crappy funk.

This year there is no family gathering for great food, perfect pies, and conversation... There is no family left really. Just my Grandma and she's skipping this whole holiday season too as she lost two daughters in one year... lost too much.

So Q'man and I have dinner reservations, the kids have decided to go with their dad for the weekend to give me a break.... There will be riding in my future even if all I do is cry into a mane.

Everyone enjoy your time with your families as time is precious and something we can never ever make up.


  1. Try to have a good day remembering all the good times. I wish you and your a nice day today.

  2. Hope you enjoyed your outing and that you feel better today!

  3. It is strange at the holidays when things in the family have changed so dramatically. It is not me, it makes sense in that situation to do something different than what has traditionally been done to celebrate. Cook something completely different, go to a different house, that kind of thing. I hope it gets a bit easier.....

  4. Thank you everyone.... We made reservations and went to see a comedy! I ended up laughing so hard and much my face hurt =)

  5. I try very hard to not remember. I would only cry. I will see everyone that has gone before again; but I cannot change they are gone from this earth. I just focus on who is here now and cherish them.

  6. OH,my sweet dear heart...I am so very redered in my heart-to hear your loss has wounded you still and your poor Grandma~2 daughters-OH!!!

    I am cheerishing the times with my mom...I forwent the regular gathering with my man's mom..cause well, mine means more to me and I feel like,every year may be the last times.

    I am glad that you could laugh a bit and go out though...sometimes we do that too...just relax...but I do miss the leftovers and we end up making the dinner within 2 weeks just for those!

    Well, know that I am praying for you and-your horses mane is for the purpose of it is grasped tightly in your fist-going up a steep hill or tenderly carresing your cheek, as your weep a heartful into it~

  7. Thank you for your kind words KK they mean so much.

  8. I am glad you found some fun on Thanksgiving day...I know the pain you feel, I lost my dad 4 years ago and life will just never be the same..Holidays are hard and I know people say time makes it easier, well I keep waiting..I'm so sorry for the losses you have dealt with, I will keep you and your family in my prayers..


Happy Trails!
