To Everything There Is A Season

I have a little progress on my sock to show:

and that is it, I never made it to Michael's when I said I was going so hopefully I can make it today. I went to my second funeral in 2 weeks today, first was my G-Ma's last monday on the 12th and today was my cousin's. He was only 41 and was a great husband, father and all around good guy. He will be truely missed. He had a massive heatattack on Wednesday the 14th and it took everyone by surprise, including me. He and his wife and and of their sons were just at my G-ma's funeral that Monday and all week long before that his wife had been over the house helping with the preparations. So this one was blowing my a bit, but then I read

Ecclesiates 3:1-8
"To every [thing there is] a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: Ecc 3:2A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up [that which is] planted; Ecc 3:3A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; Ecc 3:4A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; Ecc 3:5A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; Ecc 3:6A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; Ecc 3:7A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; Ecc 3:8A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace."

And realized that there is a season for eveything, and sooner or later we all must pass that way.

The point in life is to spread the Word of God and live a life worth of the Salvation you've been given if you are a true Christian and to live each day to the fullest. Tell the people that you love, that you love them and be thankful and greatful for all that you've been given and for all the people who you've been allowed to share your life with and who have allowed you to share in theirs.

As for me I will be spending my turkey day morning watching the turkey day parade from my bed all wrapped up in my covers with some hot cocoa and my turkey day dinner at my cousin's house. The last time I went to the actual parade I was a kid and it was freakin' cold outside, so I told my mother that we didn't have to ever do that again and so the watching it from bed tradition began. I would always spend my thanksgiving dinner at my G-Ma Hale's (the one who passed away) and my Christmas morning at my G-Ma Rowe's, this was the arragement that was worked out between my parents a long long, long long time ago, and it's always stuck. Till this day I spend my Thanksgiving with my dad's side of the family and my Christmas morning with my mom's side of the family. So I will be spending my Thanksgiving at my cousin's house since she took over Thanksgiving dinner last year....and luckily she can acctually cook, not quite G-Ma's, but close.

Wishing Everyone A Happy Turkey Day and a Wonderful Holiday Weekend!
