giving thanks

this is the only photo i have of my mom on her last thanksgiving.
how i wish this day could be here again.  that i could help her with all of the cooking, hear her lovely laugh and her calming voice.  she was grace and love.  and she spread it wherever she went, and to whoever she had the chance to get to know.  
so, as we approach thanksgiving and the beginning of the holiday season, i am overwhelmed with thanks and appreciation.  for the many memories i have of my sweet mom who left us all way to soon, and for the new memories that i'm creating here with my girls and family and friends.  so much happens and we sometimes take for granted the gifts of friendships and of people we love.  and although we all go through life with trials and tribulations, in the end, family is the most important thing we have.  
wishing everyone out there a beautiful thanksgiving and the chance to embrace all of the blessings and each family member or friend in a special way.  
because we never know when the time will come that we won't have that chance again.
