Be Thankful....

It is that time of year again, when we start to into the holiday season and I am working on my heart to ready it for the time ahead.  This year will be different in many ways and a selfish side of me is frustrated by that because I have had to face so many changes over the last few years and it seems the very shadow of family and holiday traditions are no more.  Even as I have tried to hold on to traditions, time and life has had other ideas. 

So this year, more than usual, I need to focus on the thankful in the little things and the challenges.  As has been by tradition since I started blogging I am sharing my thankful thoughts here as part of my preparation to celebrate all that we have been blessed.

Even though my family again has under gone changes and looks a little different, I am still thankful for each and every one, especially my children.  My daughter and son-in-law are a great blessing to me as I get to watch them grow the life they desire and flourish in their endeavors.  My oldest son always has a piece of my heart and will always be loved more than he will ever know.  I am so thankful for my youngest son and his daily presence in my life.  Time is short, and I am never more aware of that than I am now.

 "Let’s grasp hands and promise to be thankful for those seated at our table, for we never know when it’s our last chance to love, listen, 
and lean on each other."
