Thanksgiving was a mixed bag of emotions, but thank goodness is was filled with more positive emotions than negative. Grief has a way of showing up at times that I don't expect. Those are the times that I hate the most. So I guess I'll start with that... Daughter M and I called R's parents in the late afternoon of Thanksgiving. They had both been sick. M hasn't seen them since the Christmas after R passed away. That is a long time to go without seeing someone, but since she now lives in NYC and I don't live close to them- that is just the way it is. It was a very pleasant phone call, but when we hung up, we looked at each other and started crying. It was unexpected by me to feel the emotions that I felt- but such is my life now. It was the emotions that wash over you and you think, "How did I get to this place?". I think M and I even asked each other that!! Dr. T had a bit of melancholy too as he told me it was hard to sit there and enjoy what he knew R was missing. But as I told him- that is the reality of our lives. I hate what has happened in my life, but I now can't imagine my life without Dr T in it!!! And, thank you God, I am happy!!
