Happy Thanksgiving!

Today I am thankful for...

My friend Rae, who inspired me to make a thankful list.

My husband, who is working a graveyard shift right now in preparation for Black Friday at Target.

My family, that will be all together over one roof for dinner tomorrow.

For My Friends...

I ache for my friends when they ache. Death is never an easy thing to deal with, it hurts. It hurts so bad and there isn't really a lot of comforting things to say when it happens. And it hurts. It feels like there is no hope and nothing good can come from it. And it hurts. When morning comes and your eyes are still red from crying the night before. And it hurts. School and work are not put on hold and the world moves on while you are in agony. And it hurts. It's okay to hurt. It's okay cry. It's okay to be broken. "Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted." Jesus said so.
