Yesterday my husband's friend at work was killed in an auto accident travelling to work. Needless to say, my husband and all of his coworkers are devastated. We don't live in a "big" city, we don't have big interstates, rather we have country roads, country highways and the occassional 4 lane highways to bigger cities. This is a crushing blow to the many people that knew this excellent example of a man and person. My thoughts remain with his widow and their daughter. It is a tragic loss.
This Thanksgiving holiday, I am thankful for all the many blessings God has bestowed in my life. My husband and four beautiful children, our health, the roof over our heads, the food in our bellies and the days that God has given us to enjoy each other and his wondrous works. My little family is my world and I'm thankful that I have been so bountifully blessed.
I wish that for all of us, that we can recognize the many blessings in our lives and give thanks for them. It's easy to get mired down in day to day grind, turmoil and strife of life, but the person that can rise above this and see the "forest for the trees" or "stop and smell the roses" is a truly blessed person.
Happy Thanksgiving....and tonight, gather your family and loved ones and hug, kiss and celebrate life with them, for it is a gift from God that should not be misused, for you never know the hour or the time it shall be taken.
