Month of Thanks: DAY 23
Today I am thankful for this most blessed of holidays. It reminds us what is important to us. We should exercise that throughout the year, but today is symbolic of that practice. I am grateful to spend this day with my loved ones. This is the first Thanksgiving I have had my son with me without having to worry about ever sharing him again. That in itself is a blessing. However, as wonderful as this day is, there are people that I miss; people that should be here. My aunts, other relatives, and my father-in-law. I didn’t think that last Thanksgiving would be the final one for my Aunt Evelyn or my father-in-law. It goes to show you that you have no idea what 365 days can bring to you. That’s why we need to drink up each day as if it’s our last, and hold on to the ones we love.
