Its difficult

I'm trying very hard to remain positive that this weekend will be fun and full of activity and people that I dearly love. But see, I have no family nearby. So what does someone like me do for Thanksgiving?? We go to the Carolina Coliseum and eat with homeless people. Its either that or stay in the house alone with a pizza and ice cream and watch the parade. I see my family once a year at Christmas. Seven days is all I get with them. I try not to be bitter and begrudging of those who have large families and big doings for Thanksgiving. And I try not to be down on the idea of eating with homeless folks. After all, I do have a place to live. So why am I sitting here at 6:30 in the morning feeling bitter and angry?? Because I just am. I'm hoping God will forgive me for feeling so hurt and alone.

To spare everyone on this joyous weekend I'm out of here for a few days. Its not fair of me to post my sadness and anger on a day where people are full of peace and joy. I'll feel that way at Christmas when I see my Mother and Stepfather again. For now, Happy Thanksgiving FOJG. Don't take the irritation and difficulty of having a big family under one roof for granted. You don't want to know what its like on the other side of that coin.
