The turkey is in the oven, the vegetables prepared and ready to go. Days of baking of pies, breads and cookies are on display. Once again, Thanksgiving Day is upon us, and we do something we should do each and every day…… We take time, we pause, and we reflect upon the reasons we have to be thankful.
The world around us is a hectic place, a troubled place. We have soldiers scattered around the world, away from their loved one’s, representing and defending our great nation’s commitments. The economy continues to falter along, with our leaders failing to make the necessary decisions to motivate the recovery.
Yet, despite the daily problems each of us may face, we have very much to be thankful for this year, perhaps more than any other.
First and foremost, we are thankful for the loved one’s we share our lives with daily. Thankful for our spouses, our children, our parents and grandparents, our sisters, our brothers. We are thankful and we remember those who are no longer with us, but whose memories remind us of the impact, the influence they had upon us.
We are thankful to our Creator, who gave us the blessing of our family, and the blessings of this great nation.
We are thankful for our friends and acquaintances, the people who add to the fabric of our lives.
We are thankful for the blessing of being citizens of the greatest nation on Earth, where no matter how bleak things may appear, we know that we are blessed to have the opportunity to be free to challenge the system, to make it better.
So, this special Thanksgiving Day, let us take time to acknowledge our blessings, to give thanks to God for the blessings of our lives, and let us cherish those who are the fabric of our existence.
From James and Family, be God Bless you and yours, and may you have a very special Thanksgiving!!
