Holidays are times for large families to get together and just ”be” together. They cook and talk about life and love, yesterday, today, and their hopes for tomorrow. For others, holidays are empty. There are no meals filled with turkey and dressing, family and friends, or love and laughter. Some people are surrounded by others and still feel alone. Everyone finds some way to give thanks. Today, I give thanks for Penny Umbers and Mark Bethel. Their story will soon be told through Story Terrace in the book ”Thirty-Nine Years in the Wilderness”, and it is a testament their journey, their connection, and proving it’s never too late to find your person.
