Thanksgiving Day

Just want to wish everyone a safe and warm Thanksgiving Day, and to list some of the things I'm thankful for today.

My family. I'll be spending part of the day today at my brothers place today. Don't know who all will be there, but it's all good.

My friends, both IRL and you guys. With the help and support of my IRL friends and you guys, I was able to keep my head above water during my extended period of unemployment. Thank you for that.

Speaking of employment, I'm thankful that I have a new full time job. I get along really well with my new co-workers, and I'm doing something that I'm good at.

My country. I am so thankful that I live in the United States! I enjoy so many freedoms that others do not have, and I pray that I will never take those freedoms for granted. I'm also thankful that so many people risked their lives, with some making the ultimate sacrifice, to not only give birth to this nation, but to continue to guard the freedoms that we who live here enjoy today.

I'm also thankful that one of the freedoms that we enjoy is the freedom of religion. Let us keep in mind those who do not have a job, or a place to call home this day, and ask the good Lord to extend His helping hand to those less fortunate.

What are you thankful for?
