Please keep in mind that abuse escalates during the holidays so on what I think of as the official start of the holiday season stay safe. Abusers seem to have a shorter fuse this time of year and so please think more about your safety then standing up to them!
I hope everyone has the best Thanksgiving they can but most importantly stays safe.
I personally hate the holidays but it is not all because of the abuser in my past but I will paste a smile on my face for children and get through it. I am even going to attempt to cook a turkey again (sigh). The last two years we went to my ex boyfriends house and he knows how to cook a turkey. I would not be cooking one if it wasn’t for the fact that I won one, lol. But on the bright side we are free from the abusive jerk and we will have a good day.
Please check in when you can. We really worry at the holidays!! When you check in how about at least one thing you are grateful for?
I will forever be grateful for my children! They give me strength and remind me there are good people in this world. I am not sure how they grew up to be the wonderful people they are but I am so glad they did. I am also grateful that my DS has made a complete turn around and will one day make someone wonderful lady a great husband and will be a wonderful father!!
