Yes, I think you deserve a day to decompress. I think and hope that "1 more day" will make a very good difference.

Thank you both. I called out. I heard they would probably send us home early anyway.

wishing for you and your family a peaceful day of sharing and relaxation--a no stress, no obligations thanksgiving day. someone once said, and i think it was coleridge, that 'thanksgiving is a memory of the heart.' msm, try to hold your memories close to your heart. and you will see better times ahead. hold on to those near and dear to you.

oh msm, it is a good thing that you took this day off from work. only i think you need to consider getting away for a longer time than just one or two days. you really need a break, a physical separation from the losses surrounding you in your town. i hope you will consider doing this for yourself. i think about you often, msm, wish there was a way to make your burdens easier somehow. hugs....

MSM, so glad you had a "mental health day". Hope you can enjoy the holiday. I know that even with everything that has happened to you of late, that you have much to be thankful for just as the rest of us do. I'm thinking of you often.

Not that I have been a real regular contributor for the past couple years....but I had great intentions to start posting again. It has been about 19 months since my husband died, and I am about to embark on a major change. I am making progress on selling the farm and moving to New Mexico, to be a neighbor to one of my sisters. The closing on the farm should be scheduled next week. I have bought a lot, really a sandbox, and intend to move in January. From there, I will be building a new house. So, I hope to be back posting by next summer, once I figure out how to grow vegetables in the high desert. Whew!

Praying that the move goes well Beth. It will be quite an adjustment living in NM from OH!! Having your sister nearby will help loads. Wishing you the best and come back when you can. We'll leave the light on for you!
