Well kiddo, I survived shopping today. I did good for the most part. Got a little teary eyed when I heard Jingle Bells playing but not to bad. Even sang along. 😃. It was very hard when we ran into to Josh. He still had not heard about your leaving yet.. He was heartbroken. He thought a lot of you “King Arthur”. Today was a good test for me and I think I did pretty well. I should have a t-shirt made… ” I survived Black Friday 2014 ” Love you Artie!!
Well here we are, the start to the holiday season. We’ve had our turkey and pumpkin pie. As we look forward to the rest of the season, I hope everyone that has lost a loved one can find some comfort in the people in their lives that remain. Take a moment now to count your blessings, call someone you have not talked to in a while and tell them you love them. Forgive the things that are eating at you. Smile at the strangers you will encounter tonight and tomorrow as you head out to shop.
Remember the ones we have lost live on not just in our our hearts but in the lessons we learn from their passing. Happy Thanksgiving!
