Since my dad and sister died some holidays have lost their appeal and Thanksgiving was no exception. It felt really good when Nick and Jenn got married because I loved that Jenn especially had someone special, and it also meant there was one other person to share the holiday with. Even though I found Nick to be a great guy, I don't know if my heart was ever in the holidays anymore. This Thanksgiving though I just couldn't wait for it. My mom made an awesome meal, (I made the bread!), Nick and Jenn were there, and I invited my friends Heather and Mike and Megan and I am so glad they came. Heather was there for so many Thanksgivings and all sorts of holidays in the past, and having her there resurrected the feelings I used to have during Thanksgivings when everyone was present. I don't think I have ever been closer to Mom and Nick and Jenn, and although I can never replace who is gone, with Heather (who will always be a member of my family) came her husband Mike, and of course Megan is such a good friend that I had that feeling of family again. I have often wished that I could go back in time, and last night part of me did. Here's to counting the days 'til next year.

P.S. Joey: Maybe next year you will be available to come too, because you are another person I am truly thankful for.
