i was reading an article today in this fabulous publication aspenpeak and as i read about michael douglas, i thought... one can have all the money and star power but if you don't have your health... what do you have?
then i saw the report on natalee holloway and the "jawbone" that was found... it is not hers. my first thought was..."how sad" then i thought... well, maybe they will find her someday.... like elizabeth smart... staying hopeful...
i cannot imagine how her family must feel. truly thanksgiving is not a happy time for them.
today my sister and i took an employee of hers to walmart. we gave her some time to come up with a list of things she might need (for the holiday and just needs in general) and she loaded a basket to the brim (very humbly and conservative) and when we got to the checkout, she was sweating, tears streaming and hugging us like she would never let go...
the only reason i tell anyone this is we did it for her and in turn, i ended up feeling so humbled.
yes, i think of thanksgiving as a time to be with my amazing healthy family, eat loads of homemade food but truly this year... God is teaching me to truly enjoy every day with loved ones and be thankful for every blessing in my life.
and you my friends... i am truly thankful for... each and everyone of you.
have a joyous day... xx
