Thanksgiving was and is a religious oriented holiday (methinks). BUT, but one doesn't have to be religious to be thankful. Being thankful is an act that gives inner peace. Grateful and thankful seem to be synonymous, probably in the strictest sense they are not, but that is how I see them.
Have you ever been in a 'near collision' and breathed a sigh of relief, THANKFUL that you were not part of an accident. I am not sure that God micro manages this earth, and I am not sure that His hand is not in some small things.
Many blessings or Luck comes our way because of wise decisions back seconds, minutes or even years prior. There are diseases or health problems we can avoid by being wise in our lives choices. Other diseases hidden in your genes 'may or may not' show themselves in your life time.
I am thankful that the nasty word cancer is not prevalent in my family. But I am VERY aware that heart disease and some dementia 'runs' in our family. Being thankful the Hurricane, tornado or flood missed you is not being 'glad' someone else was hit.
This could be sister Shirl, she is thankful for pigs.
I am a thankful person. SELDOM a day goes by that I do not express my thankfulness to someone, usually my girl, whom, I am the MOST THANKFUL. I would wager that every trip we have made that at one time of the other in that trip I will look at my sweetheart and say, I,we are the most blessed people in the world, you and I.
I will not take up more of your time on this Thanksgiving. I just wanted to say to the folks who read, THANKS. To the folks whom we have met through this 'social Media', I am so thankful for you guys. I am an optimist on life and our country. I am THANKFUL for the USA and the opportunities I have been presented with here. This is a great country and will remain so.
Thankful for a 3 dog night!
