This photo is called “The Crossing” I’m using it to say farewell to two cousins who have crossed over in the last couple of weeks. November has been a very tough month for me. Not only saying farewell to two cousins, but also remembering my dear mother who passed in November several years ago. Losing family members is very tough, but the faith that there is another realm of existence where families will be together helps a great deal. It lessens the pain of loss and sorrow. I wish to express my gratitude to these two wonderful cousins and my mother who have influenced my life and were great examples to me of how to live life to the fullest and enjoy each moment.
Life is precious. It’s important to enjoy each moment you can with family and friends, because what else is there? Without family and friends, we have nothing.
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving where we celebrate our Thanks to our Creator for all He gave us, and for the ultimate sacrifice of His Son, who gave us life that we will be lifted up perfected at the last day to be with those we love.
Isn’t that what this holiday season is really about? Giving thanks and remembering the real meaning of Thanksgiving and Christmas. I hope you remember to enjoy your time together with family and friends, and remember to slow down this holiday season and remember why we celebrate.
