Today is Thanksgiving, a time to celebrate the blessings in your life. Our family has been celebrating Thanksgiving since the first one in America at Plymouth. There have been times throughout our history that finding a reason to be thankful might have been a little more difficult than others due to drought, famine, financial depression, loved one’s off to war, etc., but even in those times we had our health and family.
For me, every few years Thanksgiving falls on my daughter’s birthday as it does this year. Today she turns……. Ha! You thought I was going to screw up and give away her age? I think not. It should suffice it to say it is an anniversary of her 29th birthday. Since my son and his wife and children are having Thanksgiving Dinner with her family at noon, we will have our Thanksgiving/Birthday dinner in the evening.
This year I am thankful for God’s blessing, the service members keeping us free, my health, my wife’s health, my children’s health, and my grandchildren’s health. I am thankful for my friends and extended family and pray for the health and fortune too.
I hope that each one of you also finds reason to be thankful and I pray that God blesses each of your households too.
