Count Your Blessings/Have a Blessed Thanksgiving

lulie___wayneNovember 24, 2005

I know that many of you are experiencing very new, raw, grief today. I have found that on those special days when we miss our loved ones so much that it helps to try to focus on the loved ones that we do still have with us. We can become so focused on what we don't have that it is easy to neglect what we do have. If you are having dinner with others today, try to be thankful for those who are still here because they may not be next year. As you all well know, none of us are guaranteed another year, day, hour, or minute. If we are able to be sitting at the computer now, we are much more blessed than many who can't even lift their heads off of a pillow.

I wish you all a very blessed day.

God bless you too, Lu. I stopped by to say a prayer for all those who are grieving today. May your memories of your loved ones give you some comfort.

love, cocooner

Thanks for the reminder, Lulie, we all need to hear that now and then.

I miss seeing you at the KT!
