Happy Thanksgiving

From the very first Thanksgiving until now, how things have changed. The pilgrims then worried of making it through winter, cold, starvation, hostile forces, disease, and just the basics in life were a struggle.

Yet, they were thankful.

Today we have homes with heating and air conditioning, closets of clothes, pantries and refrigerators full of food, great medicine, but still hostile forces. Our basics have changed, the necessities readily met. Basic now seems to refer to the type of cable one has in their home.

I think we are thankful. I feel that 99% of the people I know and read are thankful. I read the blogs as much as I can and overall, 99.9% truly of the people I read, feel blessed.

I like that. Sure we all have days where we want to pull our hair out and scream. We are living lives, not some fantasy world. Life will get under our skin, we’ll be overwhelmed.

But for the most part… we all feel blessed.

Today is a day that we can readily put it on our blogs and shout out that we are thankful, whether it is through lists (there are some cool ‘I am thankful’ lists out there), or posts, or a simple “Happy Thanksgiving”.

I am thankful for many things, but today, the most pervasive thoughts are for our men and women overseas. I am thankful for them and all that they do.

So to any men and women serving us right now, who may stumble upon this, Happy Thanksgiving. I am thankful for all you do.

To any families who have family members serving this great country, Happy Thanksgiving. I am thankful for your soldiers, sailors and airmen and wish you great strength during this time.

You are in my prayers.

As for here at home, Mom has dinner started, we’ll be taking the kids out and about to get them out of the house, and Bones has a placemat he made in school complete with prayer. He’ll be leading our Thanksgiving dinner prayer.

And to you and yours, Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Hope you has a good one Bou.

I visited with a couple of old retired guys yesterday..when I say old they are older than me and I pulled KP at the last supper! They were in good spirits and a lot like me..thankful for the good times we've had and knowing well that most of the bad times were our on fault and are thankful for them also because the bad times make us enjoy the good times even more.

My generation may have lived through the best years of our country..wars and all. I thank my creator for it
