a simple word, that holds so much meaning. 
Thanksgiving and Gratitude.  Being Grateful.  Giving Thanks.  

Big, small and everything in between.  
Not always joyful, not always good, but always for a purpose.

2018 has been a challenging year for me personally and also for loved ones and friends.  
The challenges should make us appreciate all we have and know that we are given them for a reason.  We may not know the reason now, but God has a purpose and we must trust in that.

Life is short.  Never let the chance pass to let those you love know just how much they mean to you.  
Make memories.  We don't get do overs so don't regret the past but strive to do your best in your days ahead.  Be kind.  Be considerate. Don't judge.
Be somebody who makes everybody feel like somebody.  

Small things.  Big things.  Everything in between.  
Show gratitude for each and every one.  

My Thanksgiving wish is for a miracle....a rather big one.  Those of you who know me well will know the miracle I wish for and I know you pray for it to come true.  For that I thank you.  
For those who don't, just know it involves someone very close to my heart.  A young man who deserves this miracle more than anyone I know.  He is good.  He is kind.  He is loved by many.  
Please join me in this prayer.  

Wishing you and yours a happy Thanksgiving filled with love, family, friends and gratitude.

Thank you God for this good life.
Small things, big things, and everything in between.
And forgive me if I don't love it enough.

Be Blessed,
