A Funny Thanksgiving Story

Memories of my father

Since this is the first Thanksgiving without my father, a lot of my recent stories are about memories of him. Writing about my father has been therapeutic. It has given me strength that I doubted I had to be able to look forward the holiday season. I guess sharing stories has been a very positive way to deal with grief.
