My brothers and sisters are realizing that Thanksgiving will never be the same after the passing of our Mom last year. Living back home, our house, despite nine kids, was the gathering place for the entire family for the holiday. Now, we are very much scattered, though I will be joined by my sister Mary and her daughter this year, along with our children. Still feels funny and sad no being able to call Mom on the air and letting her talk about her traditions and cooking with that great “Jersey” accent. So, I am thankful for my family and for having a Mom that always put family first. And, I will say a prayer for all those without their Mom for the first time this Thanksgiving. May you still feel her love in all you do this day.
