As I sit here this morning (eating breakfast and getting ready to go to body pump and then straight to work for @ 4 hours) I glanced at my calendar and couldn't believe that by this time next week THANKSGIVING and all the BLACK FRIDAY hype will be over. Another year come and gone.
This week I am busy planning our Thanksgiving menu, making a list of groceries, setting out recipes, thinking about our T-day run and what we will wear (important stuff I know), I am looking ahead to the 2-day school week the kids have coming up~when I will be working and what they will be doing at home.
Then after next week it will be over and we will change gears to Christmas decorating, Christmas baking, Christmas program at church and on and on.
But first I have to reflect on this week.....the week that just last year tore our family apart....this was the same week we were crying and dealing with the thought of our uncle, brother, friend, no longer being with us here on earth ...he was heading to his new life with Jesus in heaven. We knew the day was getting close and closer and our thoughts of Thanksgiving were farther and farther away....one week last year made a difference.
One week Dave was here with us...
old photo yes...
But the next week he was gone....
2 brothers, one cousin, one nephew and
over 300 friends/family came to celebrate the man.
Hard to believe how one week, one day, one hour can change our life......enjoy your time this week with friends/family/or who ever......be thankful and gracious.....we never know what next week will bring.
