I know, I know - I'm mid-series. But I wanted to break from our regularly scheduled program to wish you and yours a happy Thanksgiving. I sincerely send to you all my fervent hope that you find much for which to be thankful this season, and much joy in the company of friends and/or family. For myself, I am blessed to be with my mom and sister, and to know in my heart that I am loved by many others with whom I could not spend the holiday.
But even so, if we're being totally honest here (and I generally try to be), I'm finding it hard to be happy. I can practice gratitude, and feel love, but the joy itself seems to be eluding me.
Instead, I cry.
Sometimes, that's just how it goes.
