This moment, I just got a phone call from my boy! You should have seen my smile when I heard my phone going off because I just knew it would be him.
I know that he will have a good time visiting that side of the family. I love when he can be around family, even if it's not with me.
I am also grateful for the show, Long Island Medium. You know that satisfying moment when you are DONE cleaning the house? I sat down yesterday after cleaning and watched an episode of Theresa Caputo talking to the dead. I realized the error in feeling alone. People often struggle with loss, grief, and sudden changes and feel that they are alone. But, we are never alone. I am not the type to be freaked out by that. All around us, in the spaces we move in, is love and guidance that we do not see.
I am grateful for my home - that I have it, that I pay for it, that I cleaned it all yesterday. It has a chance to stay clean for a few days at least. Feels good.
Finally, I will be introduced to a new family at Thanksgiving. I will host the meal at my house, so I will have visitors at my mercy when I get a little crazy in the kitchen with my wine. I may sing and scare people off. We will have to see.
My focus for now is to remember what I am grateful for and all that I have. I'm happy and hopeful for the future and have a lot of love in my life even when I'm missing others.
Cheers to you all for a beautiful Thanksgiving!
