Thankful Thursdays

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.”
-Philippians 3:1

“I believe in the immeasurable power of love; that true love can endure any circumstance and reach across any distance.”
-S. Maraboli 

“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
