Happy Thanksgiving ~

There is always, always something to be thankful for...

Giving thanks and being grateful never gets old.
Sometimes we get so caught up in our lives, we forget what
 is really important.  We forget all the things we have
 to be grateful for.  We take too much for granted.

The last few months have been a roller coaster of one 
tragedy after another.  Each one touched and affected me in
 different ways just because I have been through many
 a rough patches, just like so many out there.

Right now another heartbreaking story is unfolding in Norway.
If it affects my family it affects me, and my Norwegian family
 is hurting.  A "little" girl I love dearly is going through 
moments I never wish anyone to have to go through.  
Know you are in my thoughts and heart always.

It's part of life, but when you know someone you love is
 hurting, you hurt as well.  Especially when there is absolutely 
nothing you can do to make her suffering any less.

Everyday we should all take a moment and realize that what we take
 for granted someone else is praying for.  Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest
appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them
