just so much...

to be thankful for...
we have been so blessed with so much...
so many...
last year I wrote that the best blessings are things we haven't been given...
the trials and tribulations others are facing right now...
if you have made it a year without a fore closer...
a divorce...
buried a child...
watched your home get washed away or burnt to the ground...
lost your spouse...
seen war firsthand...
had a buddy die in your arms...
if your reflections of the last year do not contain any of these...
then you have been blessed beyond measure...
and if these things have come to pass for you...
you know that you have to look at all the little things that were spared...
the joy of the sunrises...
the giggles of a child...
a roof over your head...
and the love of God that surrounds you when everything here is chaos...
gather those close who mean the most...
this could be the last Thanksgiving you will here together...
make it count...
forget...
forgive...
overlook...
embrace...
love...

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your families...
May God bless you beyond measure...
