Happy Thanksgiving

I hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving today.  It is not the food that makes it special; it is the people, both family and friends, that make this day special each year.

Years ago when I wasn’t disabled we would invite someone, who didn’t have family near, to celebrate today with.  One year we took thanksgiving food to a man we knew that was a shut in.  Everyone deserves to have people to celebrate the holidays with.  If you know someone who doesn’t have anyone in which to celebrate with, and you are willing and capable, please invite them to your home to enjoy spending time with others.  Not only will it benefit them, but you may be surprised at the benefits to you and your family too.

We always wanted to serve in a soup kitchen, especially around the holidays, but something always prevented us from doing so.  At this time in our lives we can’t serve in that way; maybe sometime in the future we will be able to.  If you are serving the homeless this year I want tothank you.  Making a difference in the world starts with the little things we do for others.
