REMEMBER.. THIS IS FOR THE WORST MEMORIES OF THANKSGIVING!
by AnonymousNovember 19, 2012 at 2:18 PMMy worst thnksgiving was the one my mom cancelled because my baby brother deployed. She couldn't handle the holiday with out him. I understand how she felt but at the same time it made the rest of us feel horrible.
For it was the best also but still makes me have anxiety every time I think about it
This should also qualify for the best memory.. CATEGORY..
I was afraid you were gonna say he had died.. PRAISE THE LORD!
Last yr in fact .My DH went hunting just about an hr away in the mountains he went early so he could still be at my parents by noon . Well I got a broken up cell phone call that I could barley make out that his truck broke down . about an hr later I got a little better call him telling me to please send a tow truck . I called tow company told them basically where he was and waited . another few hrs I got a call from two company saying they couldn't find him and it was snowing bad they had to turn back but would try to go in with a better rig . waited a few more hrs for them to return to townget other rig and nothing. Finally a call from then they still couldn't locate him even though they knew basically where he was it was snowing so bad they couldn't see anything . Finally I called the local police to tell them what was going ion it was dark but they sent a patrol to look for him nobody couldfind him so they sent search and rescue out for him because conditions were getting bad and they knew he needed to get out of there a freak snow storm was moving in . I got a call by midnight that it was a total white out and they had to remove search and rescuefrom the area . Of course I was a mess hearing that they were going to stop looking for him until morning I couldn't even control how scared I was I honestly was terrified he was already gone (it happend several times a yr around here that people get caught in these storms and don't come back alive) .
At 6 am they sent the local posse search and rescue out and local residents that lived in the mountains up there were all out looking for him it had snowed over 3 feet on top of what was already on the ground and they were getting air flight ready to go .I of course didn't sleep I was a crying mess my eyes were so swollen I could barley open them .The one thing I just couldn't do was call his parents and tell them that he had been missing for over 24 hrs I just couldn't say those words to them around 11 my sister called to tell them and at 1:30 my husband walked through my front door search and rescue never found him he walked out until he was found by another hunter(no coat mind you dumb man ) who fed him and brought him all the way home even though it wasn't anywhere close to were he was going or had even hunted that day just to get him home to me .That was the most terrifying day of my life we hadn't even been married a yr at that point and I really wasn't sure he was coming home . FB was amazing tool prayer request reached almost every state and I really think it more God and the power of prayer put that other man in his path when search and resuce couldnt even find him .
I got the flu and couldn't eat anything!!
No in all reality, Thanksgiving 5 years ago was pretty bittersweet. I gave birth to my son the day before and went home that night. My grandma passed away a month before that. It'sbeen so hard ever since. We were so close and everything just isn't the same.
