Thanksgiving is a time family can come together and celebrate-being thankful they have each other. Of course they will be thankful for the food that will bountifully cover their tables. But this year, we should be especially thankful of our families being together. We don’t know what tomorrow brings, or where we will all be next Thanksgiving or if some will be gone.
Our mother passed away in March, so this was my first Thanksgiving without her in 70 years. I was so grateful we had her all those years, but I will tell you I missed her being with us this week. We always celebrated her birthday and Thanksgiving together. This year we celebrated her life and the memories. So there were some tears but there was also laughter.
Let’s all the thankful this Thanksgiving for every member of our family. Overlook the flaws and pray they will over look yours. Just remember love and togetherness and making more memories.
