I have been thinking of my Mom a lot lately. I think Thanksgiving will always be a little sad for me. Mom loved Christmas but everything about Thanksgiving is her. I think I have done a pretty good job keeping my tears in check the past several months but this past week they seem to be flowing. Yesterday I was at the grocery store and I forgot to bring the recipe for the stuffing with me. I am pretty sure I have it memorized but wanted to double check that I had not forgotten anything. I tried each of my sisters and got no answers and then began to cry. I just wanted to call Mom. I wanted her to be here making the turkey and stuffing so I did not have to worry that I would make it wrong. I want to ask her if she liked the pineapple and walnuts in the jello or not. She did it different every year and the recipe says "optional" What is her preference? I am mad today! Mad she is gone!
