I Am Thankful For...
Let’s pretend we are sitting at the Thanksgiving table eating turkey (ugh!), stuffing (yum!), and sweet potato pie (double yum!) and we start the “I Am Thankful For…” ritual. I’ll go first.
I Am Thankful For… being born in a country that has been and hopeful will in the future be a beacon of light in a world of darkness. I know it has its warts and short comings but it is the unarguably the best nation in the known universe. I pray that we can keep it so and make it even better.
I Am Thankful For… all of those men and women who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our Freedom and
I Am Thankful For… our military members who at this moment are in harm’s way and may be called upon to lay down their lives for us as so many have done in the past. I pray that each one understands how much they are honored, respected and loved. I also pray that our leaders know what the hell they are doing and they make the right decisions when employing our troops.
I Am Thankful For… the brains that God gave me and the education my parents gave me. I pray that I will use both to better my family’s life and the world around me. I also pray that each time I have to choose sides I that I have the strength, courage, and fortitude to pick the correct one.
I Am Thankful For… the internet. I know this might sound weird, but it has changed my life and given me opportunities for business, intellectual development, and world-wide communication. I pray we all have the ability to sort through the chaff and find those precious grains of truth scattered through it.
I Am Thankful For… those I love and those who love me. I pray the former know my feelings and that the latter continue their love full well knowing it is a difficult task since I am such a pain-in-the-ass.
I Am Thankful For… each of you reading this and only wish you the best in life. I pray you will find your way, whatever path you are on.
And lastly, I Am Thankful For… for the blessings God grants us each day and the trials and tribulations put in front of us to hone us into the best we each can be. I pray for the strength each day to continue on the path to find the truth, whatever that is.
Eat drink and be Merry for tomorrow is another day and another battle.
