Another Thanksgiving ~ it seems impossible that another year is quickly coming to a close. In the words of JKF, “as we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words but to live by them.”
It is true that focusing on what I have to be grateful for instantly diminishes the importance or significance of things that just don’t matter. I’m sure that we can each reflect on the time since last Thanksgiving and find moments that were seemingly impossible to deal with as well as times that were simply amazing. I know that last Thanksgiving I had no idea that I would be without my Dad this year and I do hope that he knew just how much he was loved and I will be forever thankful for all the times I did have to share with him. That experience has also reinforced the importance of family and true friends ~ people you can always count on to have your back.
My wish for all of you on this Thanksgiving holiday is best said in the words of Lou Holtz ~ I wish you all…
Something to do
Someone to love
Something to hope for and
Something to believe in.
Best wishes for a very happy and healthy Thanksgiving holiday! 210 days until summer!
