I will admit, this year Thanksgiving doesn't mean as much to me and my family as it did; given that we've just had a death in the family (father-in-law)... no one is in that holiday mood per se; and I don't blame them.
Still; it is an opportunity to take stock of what we should be grateful for; life. We are here and alive and mostly healthy (cough, cough):) But we are grateful for having known him and shared in his life, up until the very end. We will never forget everything he did for us.
I am extremely blessed to still have both of my parents, and that they are healthy and thankful that I can be with them this day.
I wish everyone a blessed Thanksgiving and pray that everyone takes a step back from the sales ads and takes stock for what truly matters in life.
