Thanksgiving is a wonderful day and I’m looking forward to resting, cooking, laughing, and being grateful for the blessings in my life.  Special thoughts and prayers go out to our troops who sacrifice so much for us to have this day.  God Bless them all and their families.

I hope those of you who celebrate Thanksgiving have a holiday full of family, friends, and delicious food.  Be kind to a stranger, help someone in need, hug your kids, get someone else to do the dishes, remember life is a blessing, and giving thanks is a way of keeping the faith.
