Today is Monday. But you will not find me reflecting on my memories of the fun weekend I had or how damn excited I am for Thanksgiving and being with family. My family.
Instead, I want to tell you guys something. A small community in my town was just torn apart. A little boy named Jack was in a four-wheeling accident on November 8th. He is 9. Was 9. This morning he passed.
A little boy of only a mere 9 years old went to Heaven today. All his family is grieving today, as expected, and their Thanksgiving dinner is going to be very different this year.
So today, instead of worrying about small things like making rent, the latest celebrity gossip, or what to make for dinner tonight, be thankful for those little things you actually have to worry about.
This community of family and friends who were torn apart by Jack's passing are going to hug their siblings, friends, children, spouses, and family members extra tight tonight. And I know when I go home this weekend I am going to do the same.
Please be extra thankful for all that you have this Thanksgiving and every day and please send your prayers to this little boy's family who needs a lot of prayers right now.
