Thanksgiving wishes

Published: Wednesday, November 21, 2012 at 10:05 AM.

So today, hopefully, is a day to put aside the loose ends of life which isolate and divide us to remember the things that bring us together.

The community that exists in this county emerges during the toughest of times and this year will be no different.

There are the slew of volunteers who will spend their holidays providing sustenance and cheer to, literally, hundreds who would otherwise be without a warm meal and fellowship on a day all about warm meals and fellowship.

And a Sheriff’s Office, and other organizations, with a mission of meeting the Christmas wishes of needy children and families in the county.

That is just a sampling – a small sampling – of what a unique and special community Gulf County can be when the sledding is most difficult.

And on this day that will be difficult for many, we find thanksgiving in that community, that sense of not being alone.

Discovering that at their most tested they were not alone made all the difference for the Pilgrims long ago.
