It’s been one year today since my mom passed away. I have had so many emotions the past few days; it’s hard to put into words all that I’m feeling. Life changes so much when both of your parents are gone because you can’t think about one, without thinking of the other one. Since it’s Thanksgiving week, I’ll have to say; I am truly thankful for all of the great memories I had with my mom. That’s all you have once they’re gone. The good times, the challenging ones, and the journey from being a kid to an adult that a mom holds your hand through.
As difficult as today is, I don’t know what I would do without my wife and kids. They are the joy of my life. I can never thank the Lord enough for the amazing family He’s blessed me with. We will spend this day and week, being thankful, and being together. I know the Lord probably didn’t do this, but it’s going to be sunny and 65 degrees today. Do you know what that means? Alonna and I are going to spend the day on my Harley-Davidson Road-Glide Ultra. We’re going to make some memories and deal with today by being outside and enjoying the weather.
It’s going to rain tomorrow and transition into the winter season, so today, we’ll enjoy the sunshine. That’s kind of a picture of life. The rain is coming, and the winter of life will happen to all of us. So while the sun is shining, enjoy the moment.
To all of my friends and family, I love you all, and I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving week.
