I still can’t believe it is already November. This past month has gone by way too quickly and before we know it, Christmas is going to be here. We don’t want to get through the month of November too fast though. The month is a great time for thanksgiving.

We tend to really think about the things we are thankful for during the month of November. This season I feel like I have a lot more to be thankful for than usual. I have been down and out for a bit with a broken knee and have had help from so many of my dear friends, church family, and of course my own family. I can’t wait until I am fully functional again so I can pay it back to those that have gone out of their way to lend a helping hand, even if it was a text to see how I was doing, or a kind note left at my door.


Showing your gratitude, or how much you care for someone, does not have to involve moving a mountain. It can be that simple gesture. It can be a simple, “Hi! I hope you are doing okay today!” Those small and simple things can bring a smile to anyone’s face. My heart was instantly feeling with love and gratitude anytime someone reached out to me this last month.

I invite you to share what you are thankful for and let those around you know why you are thankful for them. Call someone you haven’t talked to in a while and ask them how they are. Send someone a card to let them know you are thinking of them.

What are you doing for Thanksgiving?

What are you doing this month? Is your park doing something special for an organization or for your park for Thanksgiving, or Christmas?

If you are, we would like to know. We would like photos and to know what you are doing to help those around you.

This is the time that many parks get their residents together to help the children in the area, a local school, the food bank, and other organizations. If you are one of these, we would like to show our readers what you are doing. If you need help, or want to put a call out for jackets, canned food, toys – send that as well. We will pass it along one way or another.

If you are getting together for a big feast…. Those pictures are welcome as well. We like to see y’all getting together again and spreading your joy.

Please send any news items and photos to news@wintertexantimes.com. Let us know a contact person and phone number if we need to ask more details.
