Month of thanks: DAY 14
Today I am thankful that I had so many good years with my aunt. She left us in December of last year. I didn’t realize her time was so short when I made last year’s thankful posts. I am so grateful that I spent nearly every single Friday with her last fall. It was no coincidence. It was meant for me to be with her during that time. It made letting her go a little easier, but nothing will ever fill the void she has left behind.
She understood the battle I face with mental health. She faced those challenges, too. She is the person who called me out regarding my eating disorder. She was there when I found my first gray hair. There are countless other things we experienced together, but the list is too long for me to even type out.
I miss her so much. This Thanksgiving will be very challenging between Jim’s passing and hers. I know they will be with us in spirit.
