It's that time of year when we start to reflect on the past, search our hearts and question "where has the time gone?"
November is the month when we plan to get together with the family, eat way too much, and generally feel good about ourselves. We spend time with people we don't see often enough, and vow we will see more. We will do better next year. We make promises we know we won't keep, but hoping somehow that things really will be different in the future. Deep in our hearts, it's what we want, but there is never enough time for it all. Time does indeed fly by faster and faster with each passing year. I think that is because we become busier and busier with each passing year. We should be doing the opposite: slowing down and heeding the warnings of not enough time spent with family. In this great big world we live in, isn't family the only people that truly care about us? Yet we give them the leftovers of our time, just like the turkey sandwich the day after.....but, we do love that sandwich, almost as much as the Thanksgiving meal we had the day before!!!
If you read the book, The Secret, then you know that gratitude is something that needs to be a part of your daily life. Be grateful for another day, another meal, people to love you. I often joke, if I can get out of bed, breath on my own and remember my name, it's going to be a great day! My family laughs at that, but what is the alternative? None of us knows when that day will arrive, lets celebrate each and every day, every family member and friends, just like it's the last. We don't need Thanksgiving to remind us of how very lucky we are to be alive, we just need to realize and be grateful for each day we have on earth, to love one another, to help one another, be kind and considerate. You wouldn't think that would take a conscience decision, but it takes practice and lots of it. This is a fast paced and hard world we live in. When we sit down to our Thanksgiving meal of roasted turkey, potatoes, and other delights, lets take a minute to really reflect on our lives and think about what we could do to improve not only our lives, but others as well.....we have so much to be grateful for.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all who have served this great country in the past, as well as the present. Without you we would not have the freedom we have today, or the future of a great tomorrow. Many have given their lives so that we could live free, thankyou just does not seem enough. I pray that today we all take time to honor the fallen and the brave. Say a pray for the men and women that are risking their lives today so that we can have a tomorrow.

Our grand-daughter was a fairy princess for Halloween this year. She didn't need the costume tho, because she is already a princess in our eyes. She reminded us of all the excitement of this wonderful holiday when you get to dress up in anything you can imagine, be anyone you can imagine without someone thinking where you really belong is the "nut house." I walked with her and her father for 1 hour and 1/2. I don't know how she did it!!! I don't remember how long I used to be out when I was her age, but I can tell you I got my exercise last night and would not have traded it for anything in the world. We had a great time. When you got home, she did what we all did and still do, dumped out the loot and dug in!!!! It's nice to see some things never change!
