I hope you know that today, you have so much to be grateful for. Your table may have an empty seat this year that was not empty last. Those harsh words or misunderstanding may be still be fresh in your memory. The reality of the bad news you just received may be ringing in your ears.
But, you are alive. You live in a beautiful (though flawed) world. You have a God who loves you so much He sent His to die on the cross for your sins. You have the hope of eternal life.
Life is good. Now go eat lots of pie.
