Susan cried into Cousin Lisa's stuffing on Thanksgiving.
It wasn't just Lisa's recipe recreated for Thanksgiving, it was actual stuffing made by her own formerly alive hands.
At first Susan didn't understand, she just thought it was stuffing. But when Cousin Danielle hipped Susan to the deal, she felt stunned.
Stunned by Sausage Stuffing!
Susan filled her Thanksgiving plate with food and nestled Cousin Lisa's stuffing next to her daughter Danielle's orzo with spinach. Susan took a seat on the staircase and ate her food. She didn't intend to cry, but she's not in control of these things and began almost immediately, until tears were rolling down her cheeks. Eventually she was found out, knocked off the crying and resumed the enjoyment of her Thanksgiving.

It's when I come across something that my Mum has handwritten that I get choked up - especially if it's in the slightly shaky old lady handwriting from the last couple of years of her life S x

Cupcake is sad that Susan got sad.

Would Susan be upset if I sent hugs? I had a cry sneak up on me at my first Christmas without my Mom. It was at my husband's family Christmas. They didn't know what to do with me so they didn't do anything. And that was okay as I look back now... at certain times it is hard to find words.
