Thanksgiving Day Reflections
Right now in this stage of our life, we find ourselves more and more on the outside looking in during holidays as our children and their children gather for their own holiday observances as families. This is partly due to the great distances involved during the difficult and frequently hazardous driving conditions at this time of the year, and part is due to each family's need to have their own time and space to enjoy. We understand this, and now look back upon those times we have enjoyed being part of these gatherings with deep nostalgia. It goes without saying that we need to always be mindful of the blessings we enjoy and sometimes take for granted as we go thru life. Those moments often pass, never to return, without our even realizing it. We are deeply thankful for the many years we enjoyed Thanksgiving and Christmas with family. We have been blessed with wonderful memories and a heritage of family values which are now being passed on to our descendents.
