Life is full of change. The only thing constant in the universe is change. This Thanksgiving gave me pause to reflect on the many Thanksgivings that have come before. I’ve wondered what the future will bring. This is perhaps the last Thanksgiving I will share with my middle daughter and youngest son.
Last year my oldest, her husband and their son….my only grandbaby, came to share Thanksgiving with us. I didn’t know at the time that 2012 would see them transferred to Japan for three years service with the Marines. I miss them
This year my middle daughter will move into her own apartment. My son begins college in FL in April. With tight finances he might not make it home for some time.
That is the way life is supposed to progress. Children grow up and find their own lives. I hope I’ve done a good enough job raising them. I like the people my kids have become. School is still out on the youngest son. LOL. But he is only 18 and well, he’s got a bit more growing to do. College will be an eye opener for him I’m sure.
I miss my girlfriend Wolf. She couldn’t spend the day with us. We enjoyed her visit earlier in the week but she had obligations to return home for and couldn’t stay the holiday with us.
So dear ones. Live the moments one by one. Cherish your loved ones and hold them near. My thoughts for you to have a blessed thankful day. I find much to be thankful for each day. An attitude of gratitude is your choice.
