"Absence sharpens love, presence strengthens its."
- Thomas Fuller
When we're separated from our loved ones, we feel a pang inside. Past experiences tend to come to mind, and we long to have those fun times again. If we're lucky enough to spend a great deal of time with family and friends, it is easy to start taking these times for granted. In the midst of merriment and mayhem, especially on Thanksgiving, I try to step away from yet another nibble of scrumptious food and take in the scene. I see kids playing games, adults fixing snacks, other grown-ups rehashing the latest great argument, some watching football, some giggling and thinking up jokes to play, and a few just relaxing. I love this scene. I can almost feel my heart expanding.
TODAY I WILL GIVE THANKS FOR ALL MY LOVED ONES AND SEND WARM VIBES TOWARD ALL THOSE WHO FEEL ALONE ON THIS CELEBRATORY DAY.
