Give Thanks

19430306saturdayeveningpostnormanro I don't have too much to say other than the headline today.  It's been a good year in so many ways and we should all pause for a few moments amid the feasting and drinking and family and football today to remember that Thanksgiving is about remembering all that we have and giving thanks for it in our own way.

I am not a particularly religious person, but I am mindful of the fact that for someone like me to have done so well, there MUST be a higher being.  I see that higher being's work daily in the smiling faces of my children and their joyful noise each morning.  I see it in the rolling hills and stunning beauty of our nation.  I see it in the men and women who protect us and serve us so that we can stay free.

As a lifelong Phillies Phan, I also give thanks for the wonderfully exciting season they brought us and look forward to next year.  I also pray for mercy on Sunday.

It's becomes something of a Thanksgiving tradition around here to 'borrow' Norman Rockwell's 'Freedom From Want' for today's post.   Thanks Norm!
