Give Thanks

Today is Thanksgiving, the one day of the year set aside to sit back and be grateful for all of the good things we have in our life. Now, as we all know, that is a lofty goal, unfortunately, it has been overshadowed by the "kick off" of the Christmas shopping rush.

Is it me???? Or is the world screwed up?? Is it really more important to go over your Christmas list (and checking it twice) than it is to be thankful to be alive or healthy or happy??

While the economy is on everyone's mind maybe it will actually benefit todays households with a long overdue "lifestyle" correction. Does every person in the house really need a TV and DVD player? What happened to reading or doing puzzles or enjoying some peace and quiet??

That is enough preaching for one holiday.....please everyone just have a safe and happy day...and take time to give thanks for the important things!!
