I have quite a bit to say thanks for.Amazing how it takes so long to really get the appreciation of holidays-family- & being thankful.Dont get me wrong. I always appreciate those things. and most likely take them for granted.I am thankful for my family-friends-my faith-forgiveness- this year I truly an grateful for others who except my flaws ,mishaps & who truly know me ! I met a lady recently that made me turn my head and gave me something to really think twice about it.She told me she has less the 10 or so Christmas left? huh? she had family from California, they were unable to afford to visit with financial issues. I guess I really looked at life about years or next time .She was 67.I thought crap ,my sweet hubby is just about to turn 50.We just recently lost my father in law at 70. That is a sure way to wake you up and have a different take on spending the holidays. I guess we really need to count our happies!
