During Thanksgiving, I think it is always important to take a moment, no matter how brief, and allow yourself some silent introspection. For me, this video, represents a family that has been through hell and back and yet, still remains hopeful and thankful, in spite of the clear hardships that their son will face. It should remind us all to appreciate the health and well being of our loved ones, I certainly say my “thankfuls”, every night, for my healthy family, especially my children. I am thankful for the journey that I have been blessed to live.

Life is about the paths we choose, and, if we are lucky, we make the right choices that allow us to fully experience this one chance we get at living. Even though my ever winding path has led me through some pretty difficult times, I would never want to exchange one turbulent or painful moment, for each experience has shaped the person I am today. Hmmm, I can’t wait for some posters to have fun with THAT last sentence 🙂 Anyway, I wish for everyone a peaceful and “Thankful” holiday.
