Each year as we get closer to Thanksgiving and Christmas, our hearts soften, and we become aware of how grateful we should be. However, throughout these past couple of years I’ve noticed how we have encouraged one another, provided a shoulder to cry on, a helping hand, finances, a story, a smile, a hug, our homes, our vehicles, donated our blood, shared a laugh and so much more all while going through our own challenges. We’ve shown we don’t need to wait for the last 2 months of each year to look beyond our own circumstances and provide support and strength to our fellow human being.
Our world continues to show how we are . . .
Grateful for our journey, the good and bad experiences which fray and mend many areas of our lives,
Recognize our similarities, and
Appreciate our differences. We are
Thankful for the little things in life, as well as
Identify the sometimes valley flowing emotions that
Transcends the core of our being. We yield to
Understanding, compassion, love, laughter, generosity and forgiveness; as we
Enjoyment of being the hands and feet for our neighbors, when in need.
