I am very fortunate to have my son and his wife with us today on Thanksgiving. We will have an opportunity to go to the Cowboy game today and be together as a family. There is so much to be thankful for that I really don't know where to begin. But I know that if I am thankful for the things that have been given to me, then I will be grateful for the other things that come my way.
I hope that you are in a place in your life where you can reflect upon what has been provided to you and be thankful. I know that life takes it's turns, and we just lost an extended family member this last week ourselves, but this is what the Lord had intended all along, and we pray that she is in a better place.
I also wanted to be thankful for all of our men and women in uniform, who protect our liberties and freedoms, yet can't be with their family and loved ones on this Thanksgiving. I wanted them to know just how important that I think they are, and how much I appreciate them and what they do. I pray for their safe return to their loved ones and hope that they will be home for Christmas. I guess it's hard to understand just how precious family is until you are on the other side of the world during the Holidays. The Parker's are wishing you a very happy Thanksgiving, and I hope you are surrounded by your loved ones.
