This week holds the day especially marked for giving thanks.
I’m sure you agree with me that we don’t need just one day for this! We have so much to be thankful for this year.
Yes, 2020 surprised everyone. For some it had severe consequences, and for others not so much. But on whatever side you ended up on I hope you can give thanks.
When my dad went into hospice, I was not able to get there until the next morning. When I came in his room he was very disoriented, but his biggest issue is that he did not have his gold watch of 40 years. I told him I would find it and looked everywhere – the hospital, the ER area, the apartment, you name it. I couldn’t find it. There was no way I wanted to go back in his room not having one of the things that kept life normal for him.
On the way into the room, I found it in his jacket pocket. I was elated. He was napping in the recliner and when he saw me and I put the gold watch on his wrist he looked up at me and said, “Wow, things are really looking up!”
He was facing his last days and he could find something to lift his spirits. I believe we can, too.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
