Every year during this time, as I get older I am reminded of how thankful and blessed I am. Thankful for my family, for the ones who are still here. Thankful to God for my mother the patriarch of our family, we are so blessed that she is still here with us.
Thankful for my oldest son who prayed beautifully today. Thankful for my youngest son’s smile when everyone commented on how he was getting taller. I’m thankful that my sister was here today to live to see another birthday. Thankful for my dear husband staying up late last night to cook for us, in spite of not being here to enjoy this Thanksgiving due to work. Thankful that we get a chance to see the next generation grown right before our eyes.
And I always think of our loved ones who have gone on ahead of us, who I believe we will see again someday. My brother especially after all this time I still feel your presence around me immensely.
As I stood around today just watching my family eat, laugh, tell stories. It made me think about how fast time goes by. I’m thankful for today, for the memories that we were able to make, and I’ll try to store them away safely in my mind for future refection.
I hope everyone had a chance to sit back relax, and not let the idea of the Holiday, stress you out and all the preparations that come along with it. As always thanks for reading my blog and God Bless.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.
