This is the time of the year when families and friends sit down together and share what they are thankful for. Even during these very tough economic times with more hard times forecasted in our near future it is especially important to take the time to reflect on all of the things in our lives that we can be thankful for.
I am thankful for my family, my friends, for good health and for the freedom that this wonderful nation provides us. I am thankful for the ability to enjoy the little things in life, like watching children play in a park, like walking through the neighborhood and saying hi to the people I pass, like having the opportunity to share my thoughts with you my readers each week, like sitting under the star filled sky and dreaming about the future.
As we sit down with our loved ones this week, let them know what you are thankful for, it will enrich their lives and yours as well.
Take time to breathe, to think and to feel, for what greater joy could we have in this world than our ability to live.
Happy Thanksgiving…Marcia Blake
