Happy Thanksgiving to all everywhere. Whoever you are and whoever you are celebrating the holiday with, I hope you have a fantastic day filled with good food, good companionship, and love.
This past year has been a bit of a wild ride for us. Yet, bottom line, we have so much to be thankful for this year. To begin with I’ve been given a new lease on life, Barb is doing well, we have a wonderful new home, we find something to laugh about almost every day, we have a new four legged friend who brightens up our days, and we are still very much in love with each other. Really, what more could one ask for?
We’re so grateful, also, that we’ve been able to spend time with family this past year and we’re looking forward to spending more time with them in the coming year. Our son Paul and his wife Brittany are coming down for Christmas and staying for several months. My sister Cindy and her husband Charlie will be down in January for a week.
We’re also part of a wonderful community of caring people. We’ve met many new people and made many new friends already. Last year we spent Thanksgiving on our own, however, this year we’ll be part of a community wide Thanksgiving feast.
Yes, we have many blessings to be grateful for this year. And we’re grateful for each and everyone of them. Yes, the words of the old hymn still ring true this year: count your many blessings, name them one by one, and it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.
