11/22/05 Exchange Club prayer of Dad’s Our heavenly Father, we come here today looking forward to Thursday and the joy of giving thanks with family and friends. We thank you now for the miracle of life, for the love of family, for the newness of each day and the opportunities that are ours. Amen
Looking forward to Thursday, tomorrow, Thanksgiving. Regardless of who will be there or not there. I still remember a wonderful Thanksgiving snowbound at my Aunt and Uncle’s farmhouse. My parents couldn’t get through due to the hazardous conditions.
So, tomorrow, many family members will be absent. Grandparents, parents, brother, aunt and uncle all have passed away. But the memories of too many cooks and pies cannot pass away.
I look forward to recalling these memories and to creating more. Keep on moving forward, always.
