I started a post the other day about Thanksgiving and all that I have to be thankful for.
It was full of wishy washy sentimentalism and read like a script for a "Chick Flick" movie. So I decided to trash it and offer the following instead. I'll try to keep it simple and to the point.
I truly have a lot to be thankful for.
I am thankful to have acquaintances like Jim, Chris and Dan. I am a better person for knowing them.
I am truly blessed and thankful for 3 grown children that are educated and embarked on their own careers. Two of them have with God's grace given us 6 healthy grandchildren (and one on the way).
I am forever great full for the 30 plus years companionship of a loving wife, friend and Mother to our children.
As most of you know I am a disabled Veteran and I am thankful for the health that I still have. In the grand scheme of things I am still in pretty good shape. I have no complaints in that regard.
I was as aware as a 17 year old could be about what I was getting into. I am thankful that I was born an American and had the opportunity to serve my Country. It is no more,, nor no less than thousands that came before me, or followed after me have done.
I am thankful to be an American.
I am also thankful to fellow Bloggers that think enough of my writing to link it on their websites.
I am thankful to all of you that read this Blog and leave comments whether you agree with me or not.
As we sit down to celebrate the holiday, I ask everyone that reads this to take a moment to reflect on what it is you have to be thankful for.
