With Thanksgiving fast approaching, people are expressing what they are thankful for during this season.

I am thankful that three years ago today, I had one last day with all my daughters. One last Thanksgiving that we were able to sit at the dinner table and enjoy good food and laughter. One last evening together when we sat in a darkened theater and watched Enchanted. As I looked down the row at Maddy, Kelli and Jessica, for a moment I felt that everything was going to be okay.

I miss them every day and even more so during the holidays. I have to remember to be thankful for what I have and know that they are still with us, in spirit.

I've been thinking about you a lot and I hope you're okay today. I love and miss you.

Amazingly (given that we've never met), I thought of you when I woke up this morning... I hope you're OK today and that your thankfulness for what you had with your daughters helps you get through this difficult day. Oh, and that you, your husband, Maddie and your families have a happy Thanksgiving all the same.
Best wishes from a Brit in France who's never celebrated Thanksgiving but kind of likes the sound of it and wishes she could justify it...!
