Today is a missing day.
Today we celebrate Thanksgiving with my side of the family.
My sister is here from out of town with her son, Jack. My brother's family lives here in town. So we will gather, 3 out of 4 of my mom's children (only 1 spouse... Leland's working, Tom, my sister's husband, didn't travel with them). "All" of my mom's grandchildren. Except of course, Seth.
And the kids will play together. And there will be laughter, and wine, and food, and games.
And if anyone else feels the absence of our youngest son, the youngest grandchild, the youngest nephew, no one will say anything.
As is usually the case, I will feel alone in my missing.
