Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!


Hey there folks!

As most of you already know, I’ve been in Florida since last Saturday.

I will be sharing more about my time here in future posts, once I get back to Philly. But I wanted to publish a quick post to wish you all a HAPPY THANKSGIVING DAY, and to also say THANK YOU for all your supportive and loving comments in my previous post because they were a great comfort.

You guys and gals are the BEST!

Just to let you know, Tom and I will be spending tomorrow with family and friends.

This year, Thanksgiving has even more meaning for my brother and I because we are so grateful for everyone who has reached out during a very challenging time, supporting us with a tremendous amount of tender loving care.

We are truly blessed.

I will be staying in Florida until next Wednesday, as my mother’s memorial service will be on Monday.

I won’t be posting again until I get back east, but will be responding to comments when time permits.

Again, I want to wish you and your loved ones a Happy Thanksgiving Day.

Know that I will be thinking of you all; feeling immensely grateful that you are a BIG part of my life.

Thank you everyone!

I leave you now with some photographs I took this week.

Please enjoy….

YUM-MY!

Update:  Just wanted to let you guys know that I'm back in Philly. I'm going to spend the next couple of days catching up on reading your blogs and will be posting again on Monday....X

  2. Great shot of Tom's little dust mop Cosmo and that bakery looks like it could add pounds to the hips just walking through it

    Glad you'll have family and friends to be with tomorrow. Lisa the boys and I will be going over to my mom's house to oink out on turkey and all the fix-ens.

    Safe journey back to Philly.

  7. *laughing* Wow--you can take puppies shopping for small appliances in Florida! Who knew!!

    Bettin' he didn't get to go into the bakery, huh?..... OH my gosh....I could smell the smells in those shots!

    ((((((((((( Ron and Tom )))))))))))))

    It's good the two of you (and the puppy) are walking through all of this together. And even thought this holiday will no doubt have its challenges, I trust there'll be joyous moments tossed in there.

    .....like standing in mens' dressing rooms with a camera hoping some bruiser doesn't step out at the wrong time....... OMG you silly person....


    Thinkin' of you--praying for you and yours.

    "*laughing* Wow--you can take puppies shopping for small appliances in Florida! Who knew!!"

    Yes, can you believe that? And you can also take puppies to restaurants, as long as you eat outside. My brother and I took Cosmo to a great restaurant the first night I was here and he sat outside with us while we ate. They even bring out a bowl of water for your dog!

    "It's good the two of you (and the puppy) are walking through all of this together. And even thought this holiday will no doubt have its challenges, I trust there'll be joyous moments tossed in there."

    Yes, and there has been some very joyous moments. Everyone here has been BEYOND wonderful to us. VERY blessed we are.

    ".....like standing in mens' dressing rooms with a camera hoping some bruiser doesn't step out at the wrong time....... OMG you silly person...."

    I honestly believe that because of all the loving support we've received from both family and friends, PLUS all the support from you guys here, my brother and I are feeling very loved, which is helping us to move through this with grace.

    "May joy come and be your companion, even though your heart is missing your Mom. She is there with you guys and will always be with you. Our loved ones want to see us laugh and smile as much as they want us to remember them."

    OMG...I LOVE SWEETS! And the second I got into this bakery, my mouth was watering. My brother and I got three different things to take with us for Thanksgiving Day dinner today.

    " I've been thinking of you and also, realizing that every Thanksgiving from now on, you will be associating with your Mom's passing."



    Aw...thank you, my friend. Yes, I thought the same thing...everything Thanksgiving from now on, I will be thinking of my mom. But that's a good thing, because I was so thankful to have her as my mother.

  31. It just occurred to me that I said I was going to my mom's and you just went through the passing of your own mom. I hope you didn't find that insensitive. I sure didn't mean it to be.
    I'm probably over analyzing, but still, just in case...

    Cosmo is adorable in that cart. I couldn't help but laugh. And THAT bakery! It looks like a boutique! Well, except for the goodies! And my do the goodies look great! I could have another Thanksgiving day feast. YUM! I love to eat.

    I'm so sorry about your mom, Ron. Even though you knew the day was inevitable, it's still difficult. My heart, thoughts and vibes are with you. It's so strange. I've been going through some crap (what's new right?) but during it, I've been thinking of you. I knew I had to get to your blog and check on how you were!

    It's a comfort to know you are with your brother. Family needs to be together during these times.

    Yes, I had a SUPER time with my brother. I'm so glad the two of us had 10 days together, which included Thanksgiving. It's been years since we've spent the holidays together.


    My mother's memorial service went so beautifully. It was so touching to see how many people showed up. She was a very loved woman.


    Thanks so much for stopping by, my friend. Hope you had a wonderful holiday!

  72. Hiya Pam~


    Happy belated Thanksgiving to you too!


    Isn't Cosmo a cutie? He just recently got a haircut and he looks like a little lion with a puffy tail - HA!


    Thank you so much for your thoughts. Yes, we knew the day was inevitable, but she went downhill so fast it took my brother and I by surprise. She passed away very peacefully, calmly, and surrounded by love. It's the way she always told me she wanted to go, so it was a beautiful blessing. She died with a smile on her face.


    These past 10 days with my brother have been an absolute delight. We've spent a lot of time together talking and sharing; bonding even closer. I'm so glad we were there for each other.


    Hope all is well with you, my friend. Thanks for stopping by and for your care and concern.
