Tomorrow my family will celebrate Thanksgiving. Our newest son Alex will join in the festivities for the very first time, while my Father Alex will no longer be joining us. It is much to think about, how everything has played out to get us where we are today. Many times throughout the day, I think of my Dad and all of me is sad that he is gone, but I know with all my heart that he would want us to continue the tradition of gathering together to eat and give thanks for all that we have. I just put on the turkey to slow roast all night, and after a productive day with my family, I am ready to turn in for the night. My wonderful Aunt is here with us, and she watched every movie of our family that I have made over the years. I am so glad we did this. Not only were there pictures of my Dad that I had forgotten about, but watching all of the videos brought back so many memories, that it was hard not to smile. I just love my family.
I am thankful that all of us can gather under one roof and give thanks to our Lord freely and openly. I hope that all of you have a wonderful day filled with fellowship, family, and food.
Take time to reach out to family and friends, and make amends if you haven't already...... you never know if this will be your last chance to enjoy their fellowship.
