Happy Thanksgiving to you all! Hope you’re all with your family and friends, you have great food and are staying warm!
Do you ever think of what the Pilgrims faced? Life had to be so scary and so hard for them, and yet they found time and reason to be thankful. Speaking for myself and my family, we’re a spoiled bunch. We expect a lot, we spend $$ like there’s no tomorrow, we have forgotten the lessons our ancestors knew so well, and when things go wrong, we whine and complain instead of stopping to count our blessings.
I think of the family with a 7 year old daughter who’s just this week undergone surgery to remove a brain tumor. I think of moms, dads, husbands, wives, children, who have loved ones far away in a war zone. Our family has so much to be thankful for — my dad being home and doing well is on the top of my list! We moan and complain about a lot of things around here but in the grand scheme of things, life is real good at our house and we’re very blessed . . and very thankful!
I hope that each of you can find something to be thankful for and I hope in the coming year, we all become more aware of our blessings and think about those more than we think about our problems.
