What are you thankful for??

Today as I began to prepare for a Thanksgiving meal I was helping to provide for, my emotions was all over the place. In the last few years my holiday has changed and changed a lot. Now I am considered one of the elders. The elders that I grew up with is no longer around. They have all gone on home to be with Christ. When I looked around it just seemed unreal to me. When did I grow up so much that I am now the grown-up?  I now have two Aunts and 3 Uncles, plus my mamaw, that is it in my family. Yes I have a sister and a brother, but like me this is it.  

I have always loved family and loved deeply. Family is one of the most important things in my life. I have always wanted to keep the family together. But time shall have it's day. God always know when to take and when to give. However I know that I am not the only one that has to realize this. It happens to all of us. Each of us will eventually go through this.I thank God for allowing me to morn this morning, to work through my feelings. Tears flowing like a river, but peace and comfort came after. It's been a long time coming.

So I ask you this question, What are you thankful for this year?

Me?? Even though I had a great realization this morning while cooking, I can honestly say that I am thankful for the family that I do have left. Changes happen, It's all part of growing up. No matter how small we may be, we are still a family and have each other. Being an elder now is what it is. At least I still have my memories of days gone past.

Blessing to you and yours.
