A Truly Blessed Thanksgiving

Hi! I’m Paranormal Romance Author Sarah Raplee.

This Thanksgiving has not turned out the way my husband and I had planned. We looked forward to going over the mountains for a family Thanksgiving at my mother, sister and brother-in-law’s home. My youngest son’s family will be there.  Many nieces and nephews and their children are driving ten or more hours to visit this year. We so wanted to see them!

Unfortunately, my husband had some recent health issues that drained our bank account, so we decided to remain at home this year. We’ll visit over the mountains at Christmastime, but we’ll miss the big family reunion at Thanksgiving. Sniff.

At first I was bummed, but when I looked past my disappointment I realized how incredibly lucky I am. My husband, best friend and hero of forty-four years (on Dec. 4th) is still with me.

As long as we’re together for Thanksgiving, it will be a lovely holiday. We’ll have a whole day to relax and enjoy each other’s company.

Now that’s something to look forward to!

May your Thanksgiving be as blessed as mine!
~Sarah

Your four legged family members are rejoicing that you will be there to watch over them on Thanksgiving! And your two-legged family members will miss you a lot. I know you'll be with them in spirit.

My Thanksgiving will be spent with my best friend of 40 years so you and your husband have us beat by 4 years. She is leaving her husband and in-laws to celebrate with me at the beach. Now that's something to look forward to!

Happy Thanksgiving! It's fun to shake things up once in a while.
