Faces. That is what instantly jumps at me when I stop to reflect on this Thanksgiving Day. The faces of those I love, and whose love and support I feel, even from a distance.
This year, many of us are celebrating this holiday in smaller groups and away from a number of our family and friends. Either because they are in heaven now, or because, unfortunately, we are semi-quarantined. It’s sad. But let me ask you this – – What’s distance to those who really love?
Hovering over me from above are my dearest departed ones – – my mom, my dad, my sister and others. They may be gone, but because they are embedded in my mind and in my heart, I feel their constant love and support.
Braving this world with me are those dearest ones who I haven’t been able to hug in quite a while. For us, drive-bys and technology have had to suffice. But because they, too, are embedded in my heart and in my mind, I feel their love and support.
So you see, what’s distance to those who really love? I am thankful for these faces. And I am blessed to have them all in my life, in one way or another. ♥
For that and the many other blessings God has bestowed upon me, today and always, I am thankful.
From our home to yours, a very blessed Thanksgiving to all.
What are you thankful for today?
Until next Thursday’s post…si Dios quiere.
“I thank God every time I remember you.”
“I believe in the immeasurable power of love; that true love can endure any circumstance and reach across any distance.”
“For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
