Today I am thankful for our great-grandmother’s peaceful passing this week. Katie Fulton was 104 years old. She lived a long and full life. She was a loving christian wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and great-great-grandmother. She was blessed to see so many generations of her family and her family was blessed to be able to share so many generations with her. I never had the chance to meet her personally, as she has been in a home for the past few years but I’m thankful to have been able to know of her.
Today’s Truth: Someone you didn’t want to let go, but just drifted.
Several years ago, I met a great person through my husband. This guy was hard working, and strong in his faith. A true blessing to my life and my best friend.
A lot of people didn’t understand our relationship and thought there was more to it than “just friends”. They felt it was best that we cut our ties and no longer talk with each other.
Eventually, he chose to follow this advice and well I haven’t talked with him since. I understand why he chose to do this, as he was a lot younger and the opinion of his family was extremely important to him.
There is not a day in my life that I don’t miss his friendship, his strong christian guidance, his encouraging words and hugs and his dependability. I am thankful for the season he was a part of my life because it forever changed my faith in God above. I know he is happy in his life and for that I’m thankful and I am also thankful for the brief period I was able to call him my friend.
