Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!

The season is upon us.  Yes, Thanksgiving has arrived, bringing with it family, friends, football, black friday and so much more.

So often we forget what the holiday is truly about.  It’s a time for us to give thanks for a bountiful harvest and for those blessings that we have been graced with.

So before we head to the table and thank the good Lord for the turkey, mashed potatoes, corn, cranberries, pumpkin pie and more, lets pause a moment to give thanks for our blessings, our friends and all that life has brought us in the past year.

Enjoy your Thanksgiving!

Remembering Joe Schmidt

I just received word today that my cousin Liz’s husband Joe, passed away suddenly of an undiagnosed heart issue yesterday.

My memories of Joe are few, though what I do remember is that he was a man who had a wonderful laugh and was always smiling. As a child, when we’d go to family outings at my great Aunt Gerts home, he’d be there with Liz and their girls, always smiling and engaging in conversation with the cousins, no matter what their age.

Family is what molds us, what shapes us and what holds us together through thick and thin. It never ceases to amaze me how many lives are touched by one person.

I will always have fond memories of Joe… may he rest in peace.

Feel free to check his Facebook page located here: In Memory of Joe Schmidt

Remember to keep close those you love and reach out to those who you have lost contact with for some reason or another.  Life is too short.
