THANKSGIVING THANKS

I am thankful this Thanksgiving.

I am thankful for the love of my husband who has stood beside me all these years and supported my choices.

I am thankful for my daughter's and my son's who grew up to be wonderful people. I am thankful because they are productive adults in spite of my mothering at times.

I am thankful for my grand children who bring such joy and remind me, when they are visiting and running around...that I am getting older!

I thank each of them....Jordan, Christopher, Michael, Cameron, Lauren, Caleb and Richard for keeping me young at heart

I am thankful for the opportunity to Watch my Sister, Peggy disappear. She could have died suddenly and I would not have had the opportunity to say good bye to her for so many years.

I am thankful for all of the people who read my words about Peggy and leave encouraging comments that are helping me to heal.

GRATITUDE......

More aware of what you have than what you don't.

Recognizing the treasure in the simple...a child's hug, fertile soil, a golden sunset, a walk in the snow or rain.

Relishing in the comfort of the common.    ( Max Lucado )

This Thanksgiving, I bow my head and give thanks........

I Love You Today, Peggy!  

 Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!!!!

you do have so much to be thankful for!  That is a BEAUTIFUL family pic you have there!  I want another one this xmas!
It is truly a gift when we have the chance to tell our loved ones how we feel before we lose them.  Tragedys rob us of that.  And I seem to take everyone for granted until i lose them. That is why I cherrish my last moments with those who I have lost.  2 people, I didn't get that chance... and i have found that that IS a special gift.  I'm glad you do have that with Peggy.

Love,
Wendy
Happy Thanksgiving girl!
(you aren't old!)

What a wonderful family picture-you are indeed blessed. I only wish Peggy could see it and smile as I did. I am glad you can hold the memories for her, since she cannot hold them herself. Margo
