I want to be the first, to wish one and all a HAPPY THANKSGIVING DAY, a day to share. Remember, many will be without on this day, can you help them. I am helping out a family who would not have a happy thanksgiving day, without me, and this makes me happy to know that I can still help, are you helping others on this day? It's not to late yet, do it, it will make you happy also.
I wanted to take the time to wish all of you on this forum a happy thanksgiving. I know many of you don't celebrate such things, but I do, and wanted to share some of my culture with you. I'll give you a short list of things I'm thankful for:
1. My family and siblings who support and inspire me. 2. My faith that both comforts and confounds me at times. I am better for it. 3. A vocation that is at times frightening and extremely personally rewarding. Without my daily challenges I would implode. 4. A long run of prosperity. 5. A spouse who understands me completely and lets me be who I am. 6. Freedom from hunger, want, illness, and conflict. 7. The ability to help others in need. 8. People on the internet (You) who at least attempt to understand me, and generally tolerate me.
It's easy to compile a list of problems and issues. Take a few moments to compile a list of good fortunes and offer it up to your creator, or just share it with a friend. It's good for you. (A turkey sandwich is good, and pretty good for you too:)
I am thankful for: My family who give my life purpose and love. My grandson who just turned a year old and who is a joy. My Faith which sustains me. My friends who enrich my life and add more love. My health which I sometimes take for granted and shouldn't. My job which I love and which I hope helps others. My home where I feel safe. My country which affords me all my freedoms.
Remember Christmas will be here soon, so you can still help others. If you can, please do so, it will make you also happy. Try it you will like it. Don't just give to the agenicies, sometime, those who need it most, are turned away, give direct to those who you know need help.
If anyone wants to help me with my family that I am helping, please let me know, I am not rich, and will need some help on this.
Thank you, and remember, those who can, must share with those who don't have. Don't let any child go without, due to hard times. We need to make sure all children, have a good meal and someone who cares for them.
