My sister-in-law informed my sister last night that she and my brother and their son would not be coming over for Thanksgiving dinner at my sister’s house Thursday. The reason being that the New Orleans Saints play that day and he wanted to stay home to watch it. Low and behold, the game doesn’t start until 3 p.m. Even though we live in the same community, their son went to a private high school and my daughter attended the local public high school so we didn’t get to blend together very much because of this fact. We all lead very separate and different lifestyles. I have never held anything against them for not coming to my daughter’s sporting events or even her high school graduation. I honestly believe my sister-in-law has never liked my family. Last Thanksgiving we had a similiar problem with them coming, but I had a chance to speak to my brother about it and they ended up coming over.
Please pray for my family as my brother is sick with Pulmonry Fibrosis and will need a double lung transplant sooner or later. He is doing well now, but his health could diminish considerably at any given moment.
