A Good Thanksgiving

All in all, it was a good Thanksgiving holiday.  The boys and I went our separate ways on Thanksgiving with Tanner going to Cearra's family, Trevor with his dad and Janet, and me spending the majority of the day with Donna, Hillary, Paul and some of their family, but I think it ended up being a nice day for all of us.

Yesterday, I wasn't sure how the day was going to turn out since I was fighting off one of those "moods" early in the morning but it ended up being a very nice day.  One of the nicest days I've had in a while.  The boys, Cearra, and I all went to Granny Jane and Pop Jerry's house and had lunch.  We spent the afternoon with them talking and laughing, and then last night I got to have mexican food.  There's just something about Thanksgiving and all that turkey and ham.   As soon as the holiday is over, I have this craving for mexican food!  So I'm all good now!!  I've had my turkey and dressing - and my chips and hot sauce!

I don't really know what all was said to Tanner at his doctor's appointment on Thursday.  Dr. Albritten visited with him alone but I do know that she called a counselor while they were in the exam room together and scheduled him an appointment for next Thursday.  The nurse told us he just has "too much to handle on his own" so I guess we'll see how he does with counseling.  He told them he "doesn't like counselors" and they asked him to at least give it a try. 

He's been taking his medicine like he should since the appointment so he's back on track in that regard.  We just need to keep him there!

Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coal, deep-burning and unquenchable... Bruce Lee


  1. Glad you had a good Thanksgiving....even though you went your separate ways.

    Hoping that the counselor will help Tanner resolve some of his issues.


  2. Thank you Sarah! I hope the counselor goes well for Tanner also... He and I have similar views on counseling so we'll see. At least he's going to give it a try!

  3. I will be intending that the counselor is finding a way to 'connect' with Tanner so that he views the counselor as an advocate, and is motivated to continue... for the highest and best good of all concerned, so be it and so it is!!
    And I invite you to join our Intenders of the HIghest Good group on Facebook for more support - you will be welcomed!
