Happy Thanksgiving

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

    The holidays don’t have to be such downers. My dear husband go 57 years died a year ago and I’ve learned some things. First, “Til death us do part” is a lie. Death doesn’t kill love. Second, a good way to ease the pain is to concentrate on helping someone or doing something to make someone else feel special. We are not in this life to make others unhappy.
    Christmas is an especially happy time for Christians. It is a time to express our gratitude to Him who promises the death has no power over us.

    All good points Ruth, but for some it takes time and the holidays can be stressful. We all have a personal journey in this life but I agree that faith does help make the journey easier. Take care, Mary Francis
