Giving Thanks After a Rough Year
My wife has been calling the past 15 months, or so, "The Year that sucked!" And she is right. In many ways, the past year has been one of the worst of our adult lives. I've shared only a fraction of the unpleasant events that beset our family this past year on the blog. You'll have to trust me when I say that there is more, much more, that only a handful of friends of family are aware of.
But that leads to the one thing that I am truly thankful for this year. The support and help of all who have given well wishes, offered baby-sitting, cooked a meal, come by for a visit, or maybe just listened.
These gestures, large and small, have made all the difference. They have created the one thing that keeps us plugging away when things are rough, and that is hope. So on this Thanksgiving Day, let us give thanks for hope and the glimmers of joy that it brings.
May 2008 be a great year for all!
