The Little Things That Mean The Most

Today is Friday!!!

Everyone is getting ready for next week’s festivities. Many are thankful for programs of The Community Action Program or Second Harvest bringing some holiday cheer to families.

We have so many helping hand action programs hard at work year round. I went to pick my mom up for her doctor appointment. There were a group of teens hard at work raking(play wrestling) more raking and bagging her pine needles. They also do snow removal in the winter. The program is designed to be an  alternative to suspension for the students. My mom usually has hot cocoa and home-made cookies on hand for the boys.

I am thankful to my neighbor who has called me mom since the sudden death of my son Levi 6 years ago in a car accident. Part of my fence blew down and Ryan with his friend, secured it until next spring when I get a new one put up. There are so much to be thankful for. Even in the tough times, I am truly blessed by the love and support of friends and family who help me to keep moving forward in my life. As we all know, life is not easy, there are curve balls thrown our way we did not expect. My mom had a health scare, we are moving forward in her brighter future. The loss of my son was devastating. I am healing more everyday and I keep writing stories about his life to help keep his memory alive. Even in the painful times, I am thankful to God who has my life in the palm of his hand.

My this holiday season find you surrounded by friends and family ,making lasting memories, and take the time to smell the sweet roses of life and live each day with thankfulness in your heart for what you have been blessed with. It is easy to find something to complain about, harder to appreciate what life truly has to offer. I could live my life with bitterness and anger, but where would this have gotten me? I cannot change my past, but I can look ahead to my brighter future. Life is good indeed.
