Friends, since family is not close by
It did not turn out quite as she expected
Oh, she did host Thanksgiving but as is turned out
she was not there for it.
Odd as it is, Sheri learned she has a lot more
to be thankful for, than she could have ever known
going into this holiday season .
She is thankful for good friends that stayed at the house with
Bob and "Al" on Thanksgiving , did the entertaining and finished
preparing the food, while daughter number 2
and her boyfriend took Sheri to the ER with blood pressure
has high as 207 over 117...
Thankful for a very kind doctor and nurses that were working on
But most of all she is thankful for the time she spent with daughter number 2
the one that shields her heart with her sleeve, strong in a crisis
and forgiving of Sheri's past failures as a mother
mending broken fences of life by a few sincere words expressed in love.
She reminded Sheri that taking care of herself
just might be as important as taking care of Bob and "Al".
And although Sheri and daughter number 2 missed Thanksgiving
altogether at home... they shared moments of thanksgiving
unlike any other.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20
Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.
