This is the start of the very long holiday season that doesn’t end until after the new year. It’s the worst time of the year for those that have lost a loved one.
All that happy, happy, happy can drive us to hide in our rooms and there never seems to be as many couples up and about as there are on the holidays.
But having said all that, I am thankful:
- I woke up in a warm bed with my own roof over my head
- I was able to get out of bed without assistance
- I enjoyed a great breakfast out of a well stock cupboard
- I will be spending time with family and friends
- I am in a free country
No matter where you are in your life today you are alive and you are God’s child.
Happy Thanksgiving, Mary Francis
