My children and I have decided to have roast beef and yorkshire pudding for Thanksgiving. None of us really like turkey and they will be in Montana for Christmas, so no worries of being repetitive. I won't have that awful turkey carcass to deal with, just yummy left over roast beef.
On Friday I am going to see my favorite bloggers in Houston! Yay!
I have been shopping for this event, but just looked at the Houston weather. I think I need to go do some more shopping. It is hard to wrap your mind around hot weather on Thanksgiving weekend when you have always lived in places where it is likely to snow that weekend.
I did run my 8 miles yesterday and thought I was going to die. I am still hurting from that. But as I was running, I was reflecting on the death of my friend. My mind tends to gravitate to the morbid, so of course, I was doing that. Regretting. Regretting thinking he was so self-centered when he was getting ill, before I realized how sick he was. Regretting not loving more unconditionally. Regretting not calling him back straight away when he hung up on me the last time we spoke. I thought we had time to talk after the election, but I know better. I know from too many experiences that we never know which is our last conversation with a person. I hope I can carry these lessons into my relationships with the living.
We all get another chance today. Let's take advantage of it.
