The holiday season is here. I love this time of year when there are holidays every month. We celebrate fun times, family times, and the birth of Jesus.
This month we celebrate Thanksgiving. I am blessed beyond belief with family and friends who love and care about me, whether we are having fun or crying on each other’s shoulders. Having someone there for you makes every day worth celebrating. My best friends are ride or die – and we truly help each other in the good times and in the bad times. Whatever the other is going through, each of us can count on the others to pray, assist, and love big. I am thankful.
A while back, one of my BFFs asked me to go listen to a sermon before we went to eat. She had been listening earlier that morning and wouldn’t tell me about it. She just told me to go listen. The interesting thing is when the sermon got to a certain part, I knew that’s what she wanted me to hear – those good friends are there for each other. Good friends don’t have to be told what to do, they just do it. Even though you may not talk every day (although we do talk almost every day) we take up where we left off no matter how many days have passed. Good friends are a rock you can lean on. I am thankful.
This year has been full of ups and downs and my family and friends have been such a wonderful blessing. My husband, in particular, is my main rock. It seems the longer we have been married, the closer we become. I am so thankful that 33 years ago I chose to marry him. He will always be the one I look to when I need help – whatever that help may be. I am thankful.
Look around you. There is so much to be thankful for, even when times are not perfect.
May God bless you and yours…
