Thanksgiving is a
time of gratitude to God,
our Creator and Provider,
whose guidance and care
go before us...
and whose love
is with us forever.

Thanksgiving is a time
to reflect on the changes,
to remember that we, too,
grow and change
from one season of life to another.

Thanksgiving is a time
of changing seasons,
when leaves turn golden
in Autumn's wake
and apples are crisp
in the first chill breezes of fall.

Let us remember the true meaning
of Thanksgiving.
As we see the beauty
of Autumn, let us acknowledge
the many blessings
which are ours...
let us think of our families
and friends..
and let us give thanks in our hearts.

With warm thoughts and special wishes for a very
Happy Thanksgiving.
Ric, Michelle, and Family.

Old Friends

Old friends make good company.

Old friends are those rare people who ask how we are, and then wait to hear the answer.

Sometimes I view old friends as the medicine of life. Like the Beatles said, “I get by with a little help from my friends.”

I once thought friends were the people we could laugh and talk to. Now I know that friends aren’t that, they are the people that touch our heart. We could spend hours with them doing nothing at all and it could be the best time of our life, just because it was with them. And they look back at us and see a great person, someone they love spending time with.

We share something in common, and we are tied together by memories, tears, laughter and smiles.

We are tied together by love for each other.

Old friends are one of the greatest things in the world.

I find my time with such old friends the best times of my life.

Wishing you the best....Ric
