Happy Thanksgiving Big Brother

I am thinking of you as always on this day, and sharing the day with you in my heart. I have to admit there have been better Thanksgivings, but I am always thankful for my many blessings in life. My fridge broke down and can't get a repairman until threw away four trash bags of food this morning into the dumpster that had thawed and got too warm to be safe to eat. Good thing I did not promise to cook you a Turkey Dinner.

Mom is now in a long term care facility due to her dementia, and it has become a sad time when our Momma does not always remember who I am. She was healing well since she broke her hip and arm, and I don't think I need to tell you that our stubborn and independent Mother hated having to use a walker.....but she must have listened to you tell her she damn well better. She was adjusting to her new living situation and making friends with the staff and other residents.....but got a call from our little bro that she fell again last night. Guess she was walking down the hall with her walker and someone else in a wheel chair bumped into her and she lost her balance. Now they think she has broken her pelvis and I am waiting to hear what the doctors decide to do now. I was hoping to talk to her today even though she does not always remember who I am right away.....but can't do that now.

Work is going good, the world has become crazier, and I am getting new "Peepers". Had my first cataract surgery and will be having my second one next week so you won't have to tell me where to go while I am driving anymore. Good thing I have you watching out for me and quietly bitching in my ear when I need it. I love and miss you so much......that never goes away......but I always feel you beside me in love and spirit. Hope you are always proud of me and that you always know how much I have loved you my whole life. You have always been my Best Friend as well as my brother.

I love and miss you forever and always.

love always
your baby sister
