LGLWSM Newsletter 077 - Mixed Emotions at Thanksgiving
November 26, 2014

This year’s Thanksgiving feels totally different to me. Trying to be thankful and grateful when your heart is breaking is really screwing up my brain. Besides losing my beloved dog Ruff this year, I also lost my fish Fred last month… and am in the process of losing my best friend Betty. She’s moving to South Carolina soon and won’t be around to visit with or hang out with. That totally sucks.

Too boot, I’m making Thanksgiving dinner this year, which is a definite first, but I’m doing it for Betty and that makes me happy.

I’m also getting ready to open an Etsy store (details coming soon) so I’ve been busy as a bee trying to get all that done. Plus I’ve been working on my site as much as possible. I’m stretched to the limit.

But that’s OK!

I know that things will be looking up with the passing of time. The key is to just get through EACH day... one at a time. I know that although I'm having mixed emotions right now, the sun will still shine tomorrow and the birds will still sing. I also know that although loss takes a toll emotionally, that life still goes on and I feel blessed to be a part of it!

If you’re alone or feeling gloomy this year, try and think of things to do that make you happy inside. Don’t dwell on the day and try to unwind. Changing your perspective and your focus can make all the difference in the world. I think we could all use a bit more of that!

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! Sending you all light, love, and peace!
