We have a salt water fish tank that has five fish, well, four now since one passed away. It died this morning on Thanksgiving. Now to some people it’s just a fish, but I guess the death of one of our fish sparked a lot of deeper emotions in all four family members, including myself. The holidays is always a hard time for us. We aren’t a whole family anymore, people are missing from my family, and it’s just a hard time. Despite the fact that we are all thankful to be together during these times, we still have a spot that could be filled. The death of our fish reminded us that we are missing people. We all took it to the heart. It showed, because emotions were raging everywhere in the house when it happened.
Be thankful for those who are around you, despite the situations that could make you angry at them. They’re there. Be happy that they’re with you, before it’s too late.
