For me, Thanksgiving is a celebration of family and friends.
I don’t always write about what goes on in my day to day life. After all, this is a recipe website and delicious food is the focus. I feel there is enough hardship, sadness and turmoil going on in the world. Watching it splattered all over the news, I feel I shouldn’t add to the chaos with what happens in my little space in the world. I’m typically an optimistic person and I believe it’s healthier to share my optimism rather than any negativity.
But I will tell you this – although it’s been a long and arduous few years navigating through my oldest daughters health issues, resulting from a brain tumor in 2012, I am thankful. I am so thankful she’s brain tumor free. I am so thankful it wasn’t the C word. I am so thankful she’s able to continue college and move forward with her life. Has it been hard? YES. There have been days I just wanted to sit on my living room floor and sob tears of frustration and sadness. There are still tough moments, but I have the best friends and family in the world that supported me and continue to support me every step of the way – so that I can support my daughter. This is truly a Thanksgiving.
