Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving, Friends!

Happy Thanksgiving, Friends!

Thanksgiving is such a great holiday. It is a reminder to slow down and count our blessings. I have so much to be thankful for today.

This is my first Thanksgiving without my mother. I am thankful to have had so many years to spend with her, sharing moments together, great and small, that would become precious memories. She taught me right from wrong. She made me feel special. I knew she loved me with every breath. I miss her smile and voice and tender touch. She is still with me in spirit and I am thankful.

The person that understands this the most is my brother. We share our beliefs and prayers. I trust him with all my heart. He gives great advice and lifts my spirits. We think a lot alike; although, he is a million times smarter than me! He is thoughtful and loyal and kind. He is a true friend.

I am thankful for my friendships, old and new. To be able to share laughs, tears and ideas with kindred spirits is a gift.

You may not all celebrate this holiday. Still, I wish you all a day of peace, laughter and thankfulness. And, pumpkin pie too! Happy Thanksgiving!

  1. We don’t celebrate Thanksgiving here in the UK, but like you I have a brother who understands me and we are very close, even if he is 12000 miles away on the other side of the world. Every day spent with my 93 year old mother is now a gift to treasure and I have a husband who is my rock, my life, my everything. I share my days with those I love, two feet or four, and at night I am surrounded by warmth and love.
