So after you've been thankful for a while, give some real thought to people you know who have lost someone they loved this year. The holidays, birthdays, the Hallmark moments are really tough.
Do those friends a favor: Send an email, or better yet, sit for a moment and really think about what it means to be them right now. Then write them a note. Say, "I'm thinking about you," and mean it. Call them up and tell them you're available if they'd like to talk about their loved one and holidays past. Give them a tidbit of memory about their loved one from your stash. Make them laugh. Do it again next year because even if most people have moved on, they are still hurting.
They'll be thankful.
