While the Divine Mr. M and I
were in Breaux Bridge Louisiana,
we parked across the street from a catholic church
with a cemetery next to it.
"This isn't halloween."
No..It's Thanksgiving...you are not crazy.
Some of the statues were simply beautiful.
There was a certain peacefulness that I found there.
(Death is pretty peaceful...right?)
I was reminded of all that I have in my life
that I sometimes take for granted.
When given tragic news, sometimes your life is put into perspective.
While many people will partake of turkey, dressing,
and enough cranberry sauce to kill a small pony,
I will be at work caring for the ill
and the stupid.
(You know...the ones who try to fast fry a turkey in a vat of waaaay too hot grease
or get drunk and get into a fight over a borrowed screwdriver with their brother -n-law.)
(If it hasn't happened...I wouldn't say it...trust me.)
I will be thinking about all of the blessings that God has given me
such as all of the wonderful angels he has placed
in my path that have blessed and encouraged me
as well as inspired me to step out of my box
and take chances in my life.
Debbie, Mindy, Anne, Adrienne, T, Gloria,
Lillia, and sooo many others that I don't have enough space to type....thank you.
I am thankful that I have had someone with me
every step of the way during all of my triumphs
as well as trials.
Misty, I do not have enough words in my heart to tell you
how much I love you.
You're my better half...my best friend
and we have had a crazy time since the womb and I know it will continue.
Terry, you're my LOML.
I love you more than you'll ever know.
I never knew how much I could love one person until I met you.
You are such an inspiration and my greatest fan.
Thank you for getting the courage to come and say "hi" to me
as you changed my life forever.
I am so thankful for my family and friends
as well as the physical blessings that I have been given.
The one thing that I am most thankful for
is my Saviour.
Without him, I would be nothing.
I hope that everyone has an awesome Thanksgiving.
Enjoy the food and festivities
as well as your family and friends.
As they are very better than any turkey or cranberry sauce could ever be.
