As much as I like Thanksgiving, the week before it is a tough one for my husband, and me too, but more so him. This year was the 5-year anniversary of the death of his best friend, on November 21, and also the 4-year anniversary of the death of his father, on November 20. So, needless to say for a couple of years, Thanksgiving was not the most celebrated of holidays in our house. It's hard to know what to say to him and he keeps a lot of his grief inside. But what I do is try to show him how much I love him and just be there if he wants me to be.
