Thanksgiving Wishes to All, Feeling Grateful, and #LiveGibStrong Epi-Tips




We're "Not-Quite-Wordless" Wednesday here today. I want to take this opportunity, on the Eve of Thanksgiving, a day of gratitude, to thank you all again for your kind words, prayers, and support as my family grieves the loss of my amazing Mom, the FiveSibes Hu-Nanny. I have been blessed to have had such a wonderful mother and role model in my life. For her, I am so grateful. 

There is such a void in our lives, and the first of the holidays is upon us and my daughter and I are struggling to find a new "normal" without her, our "third Muskateer." I just can't imagine it. But, Mom would want us to count our blessings, and we are so blessed to have our family, furkids, friends, and all of our FiveSibes pals in our lives. For that, I am grateful.

What a wonderful and compassionate community this truly is and I'm proud to be part of it. All of us here at FiveSibes wish each and every one of you a very Happy Thanksgiving - whether you are remembering celebrating with loved ones in the past, or are looking forward to celebrating with loved ones now, the heart will always remember for those special moments we spend together today, become our cherished memories tomorrow. And for that, I am grateful.

Since taking a break to honor my mother after her passing, I'm using today to catch up on the past 11 days of missed Epi-Tips. In a round-up, here's a gif featuring my Daily Epi-Tips 15 - 26. At the end of the month, and the close of November's Epilepsy Awareness Month, I'll post a new gif featuring all 30 days worth of #LiveGibStrong Epi-Tips. I'll be picking up the remainder of the month featuring the final daily Epi-Tips, as well as highlighting Canine Epilepsy info and All Stars. Please be sure to stop back starting Friday.


All of here at the FiveSibes wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving, filled with moments of laughs, smiles, and sweet memories.

  5. The holidays are especially hard when you have had a loss as close as a mother. We hope you were able to find some small ways to enjoy the day.

    Happy Turkey Day!

  6. Today was the 12th Thanksgiving without my Mom and the emptiness is still there. I don't think it ever really disappears. But our Mothers apparently loved the holidays so we have to keep up the tradition as if they were still here with us. In a lots of ways, they are still here with us.

    Happy Thanksgiving

    1. I'm so sorry...I truly understand that emptiness. And you are so right, with the love for the holidays they had and passed on to us, we continue on and keep them close always. :-) We hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
