Giving Thanks
When I sit down today to share Thanksgiving dinner with different generations of my family, I will be mindful of the many blessings I have received this year, blessings that have helped me find a healing path and blessings that definitely make me one thankful chick.

In turn, I hope your blessings this Thanksgiving are also bountiful as you spend time relaxing and having fun with your loved ones.

And while blessings are the focus of today’s holiday, I am still one of those people imagining a chair at the Thanksgiving table wishing a deceased loved one might be sitting in it, talking and eating with us.  I know I am not alone in this feeling and for you Resilient Readers who also find yourselves making similar wishes, may I offer you a hug and compassionate understanding.

We crave the company of the person we lost and it hurts.  All I can say is that it feels a bit like a high wire act trying to balance the spirit of the holidays with the spirit of the loved one who is deceased. Holidays feel bittersweet.

While it is a lot of work to stay on the high wire of life, I am a truly thankful chick today and everyday for the three core strengths that keep me balanced up there: good health, great family and friends and solid faith.

When I bow my head today to give thanks, I will be praying that those three strengths to always stay with me and I will also be including you in my thanks and prayers too.  I thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading Cry Laugh Heal.  I hope I help you as much as you help me!

Happy Thanksgiving!
