Thanksgiving

Cole and baby Hannah

The Holiday Season is rapidly approaching!  

This is the third time I have attempted to write this article and that first sentence above is all that is left from all my editing.

Three days to Thanksgiving and I would like to reflect on what I am thankful for this year.   I am very thankful for my family and all the support they have given me throughout the years.  

 I am very thankful for the relationship with my two sons that, in the last few years, we have solidfied,( those teenage years were not easy).  I am really getting into being a grandfather, it is really cool!!   Cole has really melted my heart and has become my “buddy”.   Hannah hasn’t been able to work “her magic” on me yet, but I know it coming!

 My Mom has finally seen her youngest son return home, and I know that she is glad that has happened.   I am thankful to have parents like the pair that  I have.  

I have the best bunch of brothers and sister that I could ever have asked for!   I really enjoy the camraderie when we all get together.   In spite of all the bickering that went on when we were all growing up, we really do love one another these days. Will miracles never cease to happen?

Finally,  I am extremely thankful for that one special someone that only comes around once in your lifetime!   Fortunately, she came around twice in my lifetime!!!!   She was my best friend 23 years ago and we were too stupid and stubborn  to make it work.   But age and maturity has shed a whole new light on our relationship and we are committed to making it work this time.

Thank you Karen for finding me again!!

  1. Dearest Sky,

    That was such a wonderful reflection on your life ~ past, present and future.. And, what a nice time to do your reflecting on Thanksgiving.

    I thank myself daily that I had the good sense to “track” you down, even though it was with the sad news that my Mother had passed away. Never did I ever expect it to put us where we are today, but I thank GOD every chance I get that he knew something that neither of us did !!

    You are the best Dad, Papa Hammack, son, brother and BEST FRIEND that anyone could ask for. Thank you for being my Best Friend, it is so good to have him back again.

    I love you with all of my heart.
