We were blessed to spend Thanksgiving amongst friends. But we were missing Brooks that day, like all the days before, and the ones after. I am so thankful we weren’t alone that day. But I longed for a holiday with Brooks, here, at home with us.  So we did just that today, after people’s leave officially began. Mom and I spent the morning cooking. We played games and delved into our fun jar. We even picked out our Christmas tree before our dinner. It was perfect in every way. Especially because Brooks was here. With us.
