Thanksgiving 2021

Good  Morning and Happy Thanksgiving.  I am here in Cookeville visiting my family.  We had our dinner yesterday because my sister had to work today.  I have had so much fun with my nieces and nephews, so I should be happy and thankful...right?  I am sad to report that I am depressed.  I miss David so much and I know he would want me to be happy, but I want to run home and lock out the world.  I hate for people to see me cry especially when they are having a good time.   Well, I have to cheer up because my son is getting married on December 1, 2021, to an amazing young woman who has become a daughter to me.  It will be another reminder that I am alone but my niece offered to be my plus one and she is so excited.   On the dating scene, I am about to give up.  I have spoken to more men than I ever wanted to and the dates have been horrible.  I have a story to write about it, but it just keeps getting worse.  I fell in love with Nicolas but he couldn't or wouldn't reciprocate my fe
