Today, although a sad day for us, is a time to reflect on a friendship we’ve had for many years. Today we bury that friend after a long illness. She will be missed, but never forgotten.
Today we will be with our friends husband who has lost his life partner. This has been extremely difficult for him and we want to make sure we’re there for him.
Today is a sad day, but we are thankful for the wonderful memories and happier days these two have given us. Hug those you love today and let them know you love them. Let them know you are thankful they are in your life.
What are you thankful for today?
