My party of five was able to spend Thanksgiving with one side of Mr. Faithful's family we don't get to see much. This, in fact, was our very first holiday spent with them!
As we hugged our loved ones, watched in awe of babies growing too fast, and learning more of the past, it got me thinking of how blessed we truly are. We have so many people to be thankful for! At this time of year, you hear most people tell of HOW MUCH they are thankful for. I prefer to say HOW MANY we are thankful for. We have so many Faithful Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Nieces and Nephews! It really is difficult to see them all throughout the year. Some live nearby, others across the country. We all have busy lives within our own units. When we do get together with our family, you can feel the love everyone has for one another. As true friends can go any amount of time without seeing each other and pick up where they left off, so is the same with all sides of our Faithful Family! And so goes the way of Christ in this fashion. We are all brothers and sisters in the eyes of God! So we must love one another as we are all one family!
Be thankful for WHO you have in your life. It is a precious gift from our Heavenly Father and not one of us knows when we will be called back Home. The what's in this life do not matter much when it comes to true happiness. Xoxo
