Anna took these photos while deer hunting with Russ. I am amazed that this is my back yard! Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. It is a time to get together with family and friends, and reflect on all we have. It is human nature to take life for granted, but I try very hard not to.
On Saturday night Daniel had his Indoor Band Concert, and as the band played America The Beautiful, Daniel took the mike and spoke of what our country was like on September 10, and what we took for granted. We, as a nation, will never be the same. We cried!
Amy was with us at the concert, and the band began to play “YMCA,” and invited anyone to come down and dance with the color guard. Of course no one dared to go….except Amy. She looked at us and asked if she could go dance. Seeing no one else was going down, we hesitated, but then said go ahead. She ran across the gym floor over to the girls, and danced freely. Everyone in the crowd was envious of her carefree spirit. No fear of man. When the dance was over, she poised for a little “ta da” and ran back to her seat. I never stop learning from her. I want to have that same freedom, following my heart without a care in the world. As Thanksgiving approaches this year, we will continue to be thankful for our health and the health of our dogs, our business, and all of our wonderful clients. May your Thanksgiving Holiday be blessed.
