Counting my blessings

Thanksgiving holiday is a time when memories abound as families gather to celebrate their blessings…


The aromas of pork loins, turkey with dressing, sweet potato pie and other favorite foods will fill each family kitchen. I count my many blessings and remember special times spent with family from days gone by.

A feeling of sadness covers me like a thin veil, I term this feeling the holiday blues. I know the symptoms well after many years of dealing with this problem. It appears to me everyone else seems happy wearing smiling faces. Am I the only one feeling blue at a time we are supposed to count our blessings and be happy? I have the feeling I’m not alone with these feelings when holidays roll around.
