I want to wish all my friends and family a very Happy Thanksgiving!
Sometimes I think about the things in my life that are not good things. And blame these things on life, and the hell we go through. My sister and brother have Huntingtons Disease, which is a horrible hereditary disease. My father died at 48 with it, and my brother is 42, and not long for this world. My sister was 46 last week, she will not see 50, of this I am sure. She fell about five times in the last few days, and her face is all black and blue. What did my family do to deserve this? I don`t know, but we must have been horrible in a past life. My mother cared for my father until he died, she is caring for my brother now, and doing what she can for my sister, who refuses to leave her home. She is over 70 and has always been a very strong woman, but even she is down now, and I don`t think anyone could blame her. She has always been the glue that held our family together. I need her to keep me strong too.
I am sorry this is not the story you wanted to hear for Thanksgiving, but it is mine.
I am THANKFUL for all my friends online and the ones I have met in person. I am so very thankful that I have my Mom.
BUT, the thing I am most thankful for is that since I do not have Huntingtons, my children don`t have to worry about getting it.
