Fall planning 

Fall planning 

I’m an terrible blogger. I get ideas for my blog and never follow through. Perhaps my creativity is forever stifled, or I may be a bit depressed. Fall is here, and it’s quite beautiful. I love the seasons in the Midwest, that’s partly why we moved here from Florida. However, I already know it’s not the weather that has me feeling blue. It’s the huge hole that is/will be here during the holidays. Seth is gone. Everyday I cry for him. I know it’s normal and it’s only been five months. But it hurts like hell. 

I won’t be downtrodden or anything around my kids, because they are hurting to but still need the peace of Christmas and the positivity of the New Year. 

We are preparing for Thanksgiving, my second favorite holiday. I bought this big guy yesterday:

  
He’s about twenty five pounds. I’m hoping he will give us leftovers, because with eight people feasting like mad, it tends to leave nothing behind. 

I am humbled to report that my husband cooks our turkeys and has since we first were married.  I help with side dishes and clean up. I am hoping to make green bean casserole for the first time ever! Also, I plan on making a homemade apple pie or two. Wish me luck! 

I have been praying about some major decisions in my life. Things that are serious and very past due need to be acted upon. I’m asking for your prayers for strength and resilience. Sometimes taking that first step takes months, even years. I have to learn to trust God all the time. Thank you!

What are your holiday plans this year? Travel? Cooking? Please share them with me.
