Let us remember the true meaning of this holiday and reflect on the many precious things we do have in our life, not matter how bad things can be. I was once told by a wise man, the most valuable things in life are free. Oh how true that saying is... I lost my grandfather this year, who I spend almost every day with when I got home from school on the farm when I was growing up. I'm thankful for knowing him and all the things I've learned, the experiences, and his great stories. I'm also thankful I had a family member return from Afghanistan this year unharmed. To those serving overseas away from your family, to protect my freedoms and liberty, God Bless and Thank You! From my family to yours Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
Yah, we treasure the old ones more once they're gone. Hug your returned vet for me. Family and friends, we all must help each other make our world the best possible.
I am thankful that both of my sons are well and are progressing on the paths they have chosen. I am thankful that my wife and I remain healthy. I am thankful that my mother remains fully functional at 85 years, and I am in awe of my 93 year old FIL who also does just fine on his own. This guy has been retired for thirty one years. I am thankful to have kept my job in a shakey economy, and that I find my job interesting and satisfying. I am truly grateful that things continue to go well for us in gneral. A few bumps along the road? Of course, but nothing we couldn't get through over the years. I wish everyone out there the best in this season and in the coming year.
My lovely spouse, my daughter, my job, my home, and my lovely spouse. Why? She is first, she is last, and she always surrounds our family with love and attention. Please travel safely, and remember that it isn't having what you want, it's wanting what you have.
I am thankful that I'm over a half-century old and in fairly reasonable health. I'm thankful I have a roof over my head that is paid in full. I'm thankful for the wonderful neighbors I have here in Lynden. I'm thankful I can enjoy my freedom here in the USA- I often think of this when at my reloading bench. Let us not forget those who sacrificed so much- even their lives- so others like myself could enjoy it. I'm thankful I have a steady job, on my 33rd year now. The list goes on...
