You know, my husband and I try to create memories for our family. Being far away from home makes it more difficult because we become the only source – no grandmas, no aunts, uncles and cousins to share it with.
Luci Swindoll said, “It is impossible to quantify a memory by the amount of planning or money spent to make it. Wonderful memories are made when the spirit is right”
“…the spirit is right” – now that made me think. When is a spirit right? When is it wrong? We can have all the best intentions in the world but does that guarantee having the right spirit ?
The holidays are coming and we may have the best feast ever created by man. If we forget the reason for the feast, that makes it meaningless, am I right? It’s like having a birthday party without the celebrant.
I pray that on Thanksgiving day, we may remember all our blessings – and yes, be thankful for them. May we remember all the people who have been with us throughout the year. May we never forget that we are privileged to have what we have and that we shouldn’t take them for granted. May we share our blessings to the less fortunate ones so they, too, will have something to be thankful for and create memories for themselves as well.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!!!
