As we prepare to sit down at the table with our family and friends we cannot help but become overwhelmed with love and thankfulness. Today we are THANKFUL! I can imagine you are saying “we are all thankful.” Well for my family and I, the last 365 days have been a little rough. Starting with losing our grandmother last Thanksgiving, to losing our uncle a little over a month ago we really could have shut down and gave up. Death of a close family member always takes a toll on you.
It’s the holidays that really makes you take a look around and see that you have so much to live for and be THANKFUL for. What are we thankful for you ask? Well that’s easy, we are thankful for you! Because of you we have another reason to smile and keep pushing on. We know that so much goes into planning your wedding and event that we were able to change our focus and not wallow in our sorrows.
One may say that is still not a good reason to be thankful. Well we will say if that is not enough, we have been blessed to make it to another holiday season, all be it not with all we had last year, but we are still here to enjoy our family and friends.
So as you sit down to your table of; turkey and dressing with giblet gravy and cranberry sauce, ham, macaroni and cheese, greens, yams, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, corn on the cob, sweet potatoe pie, pound cake and all of the other delectable holiday eats remember that this holiday is more than the food on the menu but more so what we have been blessed with over the last 365 days.
