Thanksgiving started early in our American history in the early 1600s. 1607? 1620? It was given its own specific holiday in 1789. I am glad we have the holiday -- it causes me to reflect and meditate.
I should be thankful more often and not just this time of the year. It is contagious. Just as being critical, grumpy, always dissatisfied is contagious, so is having a thankful, grateful heart and expressing it.
With our world of information overload and to other situations around the world and in our close proximity, it doesn't take long to see how blessed we really are. A lot of folks out there have it tough.
For those of us that grew up in middle suburbia, it is sometimes hard to comprehend. To those of us that had parents that modeled good values and good life choices, it is heartbreaking to see others that don't have that...
So I love this time of year. I am thankful for many things, but here are a few:
* God's Grace and Mercy to me
* My Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ
* Pam, a wife who has no equal
* Adam and Kelly, two amazing kids
* Family and extended family
* My own heritage
* Being able enjoy this RV lifestyle
* Friends who don't think like I do, nor hold the same views
* Those who take the time to engage with us on the blog and in person
No matter what your position and state in life, I hope this day finds you content and at peace with things in your world. And I hope you have a good Thanksgiving Day!
