Tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day in the United States. It’s a day to see family, friends and eat lots of food. Thanksgiving isn’t one of my favorite holidays and since my Mom passed away, I always wish for the holidays of the past. I miss her most at the end of the year.

It’s been a hectic month and it’s only November 3rd. Do you ever feel like you are not giving your 100% at something? I’ve had that feeling the last couple of days.
