This is a sad week for my family. We lost a nephew at 18 and our sister is having major surgery on Monday. But in the midst of the pain of loss, I am reminded how fortunate we are- to have each other, to have homes and food, to have the freedoms that this great country of America provides.
There are so many who don't have that much. We were fortunate to participate in a drive for Community Connections, a terrific non-profit here in Jacksonville Fl that prevents poverty and homelessness. The Thanksgiving drive provides holiday food and fixings forhundreds of families, and brighten what might otherwise be a very sad and hungry time.
So this season, truly embrace your blessings. I count my friends, my kitties, my work, my wonderful husband, my garden and God as great gifts. Notice how not one of those was materially based. We have so much when we have each other. I am grateful forall of you and wish you joy, love and peace this season.
