Forever Thankful
November 25th, 2014 3:49 PM

I just received news this morning that a friend's father was killed suddenly in a vehicle accident late last night.  With Thanksgiving just two days away, it makes this tragedy all the more difficult to accept and process.   Many years ago,  I experienced a similar tragedy just four days prior to Thanksgiving.  The holidays that year were excruciatingly painful and the empty chair at the table was almost too much to bear.  I wished that I had been more thankful of what I had before it was lost.

There are many who will be celebrating the holidays this year without loved ones, and it brings to mind that we should be forever thankful for what we have today.  Nothing ever stays the same, and though some changes are necessary and welcomed, other drastic changes are heartbreaking and overwhelming. 

Enjoy loved ones this holiday season.   Be thankful for the family you have:  spouses, children, grandchildren, and even close friends and neighbors considered as family.  Material things can be replaced; people cannot.  Each day is a gift and no one knows when one event in life will change everything forever.  

 Thanksgiving is a time to look at all the blessings given and truly  show appreciation to those who are special.    May this be a forever thankful, memorable and special Thanksgiving for everyone!

Happy Thanksgiving from Barbara & Allen!
