An attitude of gratitude fills my heart has we approach the Thanksgiving holiday. Amid all of the economic bluster… of which I, like many others, have been affected… there is much to be grateful for. My family, kids and grands, make my heart sing with happiness and gratitude. They are such good people and live exemplary lives… for which I’m proud. My extended family, with their love and support for me, is an additional blessing.
I’m fortunate to be surrounded by good neighbors, who care. We share common values that have contributed to the well-being our own lives and that of our families. This caring extends out into the community… where this small segment of society filled our local food bank to over flowing this last week. When the call was made… these good people stepped up to the plate. I’m sure many of you live in such families and neighborhoods.
I grieve and pray for those in the world who are less fortunate than we are, here in the United States. We are truly a blessed people… even if life is in a up-side down state at this time. I cannot image living in fear and real lack all of the time… as so many of our brothers and sisters do, throughout the world.
After the new year… we’ll have a new president. I pray that we will unite as a country, do our best as individuals, neighbors and citizens of small communities,to keep this country free, safe, and productive. I believe, as individuals, we can do it….just as we have during tough times before. We will get through this.
Have a great Thanksgiving Day. God Bless.
P.S. I’ve neglected this blog due to some pressing family matters… but I’m back. Watch for fun Christmas printables in the near future.
