The dinner is over and the dishes are done. We will have desert soon.
As happy as I am to have my daughter and her family here, I miss my son.
He works in retail and it has always been impossible for him to join us for Thanksgiving. Has to be at work bright and early on Black Friday!
Two years ago he flew in, had an early Thanksgiving dinner and was supposed to fly back home on Thursday evening. I don't exactly remember what happened, but his flight was changed to an earlier time and he missed it.
He ended up having to fly bak Friday morning and missed work.
Anyway, the family is not complete.
We missed you Brother, Son, Uncle!
But at least we know he is safe, as opposed to someone who has a young man or woman in Afghanistan. I think of them too.
And to all my blog friends ... Happy Thanksgiving!
