A beautiful Thanksgiving dinner, but still missing my brother!

This year Thanksgiving for us was quiet and relaxing. I guess I should say relaxing for me AFTER the food was all cooked. I felt thankful for my husband and children and the many blessings that God has given me. Durring grace I said a prayer for all of us and thanked God for the many blessings we have and in front of us. I also thanked God for blessing me with such a wonderful brother for the last 30 years. As I was praying for my blessings and my brother I then choked up and had to leave the table for some fresh air and to compose myelf as I began to cry and didn't want to upset my family too much. After a bit of fresh air and calming down, my family asked if I was okay and gave me hugs and kisses. We then began to eat the feast that was before us in a beautiful setting on my brand new table. Everything came out delicious and looked beautiful. I then decided to take a few pictures and I even set a spot for my brother. His picture was there and he ate with us in spirit. It was beautiful but it would have been even more so if my brother was with us to talk with us and make us laugh like the Thankdgivings before! He loved the holidays, he was like a kid again this time of year and he was so much fun to be around! Although it was beautful Thanksgiving dinner with my husband and children, I wished he was here!
