Thanksgiving Memories

My father passed away in 2020 right before Thanksgiving, and I admit that holiday time is a difficult time for me. But, what continues to bring be joy are the memories of him carving the turkey every year. For those, who don’t know he was a surgeon who practiced in the Youngstown, Ohio area for years. So, every Thanksgiving, I was impressed by his precision of his turkey carving.

Every year, I have many friends ask me to share his turkey carving videos. I started recording these a few years ago, just as a joke, because my facebook friends would enjoy them. But, now that my father has passed away, these videos bring back so many memories.

For all those who are suffering grief and loss this holiday season (whether it’s 2 years or 20 years, or longer or shorter), I feel for you, and I am there with you. If I am emotionally strong enough, I plan to share more of my grieving story with you, because I have a lot to say about it. I do not claim to be an expert in grief and loss. I only share my story to try to find a connection with others who are suffering. I am only an expert in my own grief and loss…..
