We decided we would head on down south to spend the Thanksgiving Holiday with my side of the family this year. We had an uneventful drive there and back and I am truly grateful for that! Believe me I was stressing the drive during a Holiday week but it ended up being great! But you know, I had to worry the trip in the ground before we left and also the trip back but that’s just how I roll.
Anyway, we all (with the exception of BreeAnn, Ada and Will) headed down on Tuesday night and we all arrived safely! It was go go go the whole time. We had Taco Soup that Wednesday night at my baby sister’s house since that was pretty easy and not a Thanksgiviness meal. Oh boy is our family growing by leaps and bounds!!!
On Thanksgiving day we all headed back over to baby sister’s house and had fabulous food, weather and visiting!! I couldn’t help having this huge feeling of Thankfulness come over me being able to be home for the holiday. I got to see my two sister’s that are having to adjust to some big changes in their lives. The baby sister will be having her first baby at the age of 38 and she looks amazing! And my big sister is having to learn to live with the recent diagnosis of MS. I will say it was not easy seeing her struggle with her leg while walking. I can tell she is trying to be so strong and not really let on that this disease is definitely a challenge for her.
