How do you celebrate Thanksgiving when you feel as if you don't have much at all to be thankful for? How do you celebrate when your son is missing from your life and you will know you will never get to have Thanksgiving with him? You don't, is what my wife and I have decided. It's just too hard, at least this year it is. So we're just going to lay low and spend time together, just the 2 of us. We'll still have a turkey (I get a free turkey from work every Thanksgiving) and some of the usual sides, but that's about it. It's just too hard to celebrate when you know you should be celebrating with your baby boy.

That doesn't mean I'm not thankful for anything, because there are a few things. But it just seems hollow when our family is incomplete.
