Thanksgiving is a time for thanks and love
Thanksgiving is one of my favorite days of the year because it reminds us to give thanks and to count our blessings. And this is a day of gathering, giving and loving without a material item in the mix! Suddenly so many things become so little when we realize how blessed and lucky we are! Today and every day be thankful for your bountiful blessings and share with those not so well blessed. We should cherish this time with dear family and friends whether one travels near or far or in today’s life, maybe even make a phone call, even a video chat today to some long lost friend, family or even maybe a foe! Realize how important those near and dear, humble your heart, give of you for it costs us nothing to show it. It is plain to see those who are not sitting at our family tables this year, but really hard to vision that someone who may not be there at our table next year! This is the truth and facts of life and we should not take so much for granted as time waits on no one. We are so caught up in today’s hustle and bustle, ways of the world, whether it be politics, opinions, etc., but it should not affect what comes right from our hearts! So I just ask you to act on your love for others this Thanksgiving. Also always remember those who are not able to be home, those still serving our country and fighting for our freedoms! Give of yourself as that is what we should be about anyway. I also have to add how thankful I am to hear those reading my article and all the nice compliments. It has been a real struggle at times but I am going to continue to do my best to try to get the news and little tidbits out there to my audience. I truly appreciate each and all of you! Please continue to keep me in mind when want to share news. May you all be safe and happy on your journey this week if you are traveling! May you have a Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving!
