‘Tis The Season For Thankfulness!

Another year has come and almost gone. Seems to me we were here just yesterday – my how time flies when we having fun, right!

It’s been a rough year for this old world, and so many of those in it. I hope you find things to be thankful for. And yet we keep moving forward don’t we…

I am thankful for my family – my daughter, her husband and my grandchild (in high school already!). My brother, a smarter guy than me and his wife.

My mom and dad passed on long ago but I am thankful for the way they raised me. To do the right thing whenever possible and to never knowingly cause harm to another. When we were at the table and my mom would be correcting us on some matter or other, our maternal grandfather would quietly sit there until he decided the time was right. Then he would tell us about something mom did when she was younger. Funny how mom stopped correcting us :-). Thank you gramps.

I am thankful for my godmother who is a nun and one of my teachers in the early school years. And for all the rest of my family members, including those no longer with us.

I am thankful for the opportunity to be living in this the greatest country – even tho we have much to learn about ourselves and our leadership role in this troubled world.

I am thankful for the education I’ve had over the years and for all those whose path I have crossed throughout the years.
