What we don’t say…

Nothing haunts us like the things we don’t say

One of my favorite bloggers click here to visit MichelleMarie posted this the other day and it’s been haunting me ever since because it touched my heart.  Perhaps it’s because we are coming up on the 2nd Thanksgiving holiday since my Dad passed.  There are lots of things that were left unsaid between us.  At first when he passed, I was sad, then I was angry, then I told him a thing or two in my mind to his spirit wherever it may be.  And now I’ve found peace ~ and gratitude ~ just in time for Thanksgiving.

But I don’t want you to be haunted like I was ~ so I would love for you to take the above advice to heart.

This Thanksgiving, take a moment to be grateful for all of the people in your life for they are all here for a reason.  Take the time to reach out to tell them how much they mean to you.   Perhaps you could even write a gratitude list for yourself.  You could write a gratitude letter to them thanking them for all they have done for you.  Yesterday I told you about how grateful I was to receive those 2 cards in the mail from Julia ~ imagine your family’s delight at hearing how they make a difference in your life!

Shine On!
