"Much to be thankful for..." 'Judith Whitehead' (Inspiration Sunday)

Judith Whitehead lives in Amherst New York and has worked in
the ophthalmology field of medicine for over 30 years.
Happy Thanksgivekkah!


Much to be thankful for

This year we will once again gather with good friends and family to celebrate the holiday of Thanksgiving and also Chanukah which hardly ever happens on the same day; it won't happen  again for more than 90 years from now.  

We will greatly miss sharing our holiday thoughts and prayers with our dear mother and mother-in law that have since passed away.  Having just returned from California to lay my mother in law to rest, we feel the emptiness more than ever this year.  We are more than thankful for this holiday to share with the people that mean the most to us and want to wish everyone a happy healthy holiday season; we have much to be thankful for.

Happy Thanksgivvekah and Happy Chanukauai. No matter what, we all have a lot to be thankful for!

I heard the 2 holidays would not converge again for 7000 years! That makes 90 not seem like such a big deal. Which is it?

Harmony, "The convergence has only happened once before, in 1888, and won't be seen again until 2070 and again in 2165, according to calculations by Jonathan Mizrahi, a quantum physicist at the Sandia National Laboratories in New Mexico. After that, the two holidays aren't set to overlap until 76,695." http://dakinetalk.blogspot.com/.../an-indian-pilgrim-and...
