Asking for Strength to Be Thankful

All of my friends here in the States know that tomorrow is our national day of Thanksgiving. Many even take the time to stop acknowledge what they are thankful for amidst the frantic preparations for the holiday. There are meals to plan or partake in, football games to watch on TV and some are even plotting their shopping routes for the morning after.
The ones on my my mind are the ones who will not spend Thanksgiving at home. They are in a hospital or rehab center, doing their best to be grateful. Don't get me wrong, I know that many children's hospitals do their best to make things festive, have special guests and even serve a turkey dinner. Their thoughtfulness is truly touching but Dorothy said it best "There's no place like home".
Please pray for those families who will spend this weekend praying for their sick children and longing for something that resembles normal. Click on either pic to read their story.
