 The fact that my Johnny is on hospice drastically changes the way we will do things  this Thanksgiving. I miss being able to do things the way we once did, but am thankful, so very thankful, that my sweet husband, and best friend, is still with us.
I am thankful for today's breath of life, for the love and support of family and friends; for the food on our table, the roof over our heads, the heater that keeps us warm on cold days.
I  am thankful for God's night-lights, that let  me know He is always home, should I need Him; thankful too, that I have time alone, so that I can meditate, and better hear that which God may wish to teach me.
I am grateful to our troops, who sacrifice so much to keep us safe. Let us not forget to include them as we say grace. Let us not forget all that they do without, mostly their own families. They must get so lonely at times. Let us pray that soon, all of them will be home.

My wish for each of you is that the memories of this Thanksgiving, will be one that stands out among the rest.

Again, Happy Thanksgiving,
Love you much,
