I would like to wish my family and friends a very Happy Thanksgiving. I don’t have any flashy graphics (but I know who does, and he would probably let me use them if I asked), I don’t have an eloquent and deeply moving set of words to post here for all to see and admire (although, again, I know who does, and they would probably help me write and polish and rewrite until it was perfect), and I don’t have time to go through and name each person that means something – anything – to me (but if you start with my wife, The Most Beautiful Woman in the World, and our daughter MEG, then go to the blog roll in the sidebar, my friends list on that MyFacePlaceBook+ web site, and finally wander through my twitter list …).
But, I do have this – the desire that each one of you who reads this through any of those portals, be found today in the place God wants you to be, with people who mean something to you. DO something today that will make a difference in a life, be it yours or someone else’s. If you haven’t found it yet, find the one thing that will allow you to have an unwavering, unchangeable anchor from which you can test and trust everything you encounter.
May God bless each and every one of you, today and always, with a sense of purpose and commitment; a reason for being here, a goal for your life here on earth; and a sense of accomplishment every time you reach a milestone towards that goal.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving. May this open the holiday season at the end of this year with love. Please be careful, whether you are traveling or receiving travelers, whether you are eating with family or feeding strangers, whether you are observing this day with everyone you love or by yourself.
