Thanksgiving meant just a little more this year. I spent the day surrounded by family and friends – a number of whom flew in from all over the east coast and saw their own homes, and the devastation, for the first time. It was a bittersweet day- wonderful to see everyone, especially those not normally in Jersey for the holiday, only slightly dampened by the reason they were all in town. From the words of my uncle during our ’round the table sharing of all we’re thankful for this year:
Tough times don’t last. Tough people do.
Hope you and yours had a blessed day. We certainly have much to be thankful for this year.
