I love this holiday.
The food, the family, the opportunity to give thanks for our bounteous blessings.
I am grateful for my life, my family, my Savior, and my friends. Everything else is just stuff, which I am grateful for as well. But if I lost all of that "stuff" tomorrow, it wouldn't matter. It's the love in our lives that truly matters and no matter what circumstance you find yourself in, you ALWAYS have the love of our Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ.
I close this post with the words of one of my favorite American presidents, Abraham Lincoln.
Many thanks to my friend, Angela, for posting this quote on Facebook this morning. I am grateful to have it brought to my attention.
I hope that this Thanksgiving finds you happy in whatever circumstance you are in.
Remember, we have that choice. The choice to be happy. The choice to be grateful.
I am loving my second chance at life.
