A Time To Pause And Give Thanks

Thanksgiving is that Special American Holiday where we gather with friends and family to be grateful for our blessings, and to share our love for one another.

(Nov. 26, 2019) — “We must find the time to stop and thank the people who make a difference in our lives.” JFK

We must also put our lives in perspective, especially during those times when we are down on ourselves and having trouble realizing just how fortunate and blessed we truly are. Stop by a VA Hospital to recognize and give thanks to the real heroes who have returned from the front lines, each one with their own acknowledgement and first-person-story of why freedom ain’t free.

By the way, this almost goes without saying, but Thanksgiving Day is not a day for political discourse no matter who is present. It is a day to put aside all of our differences. It’s a magical day to say thanks, a day for traditions and sharing. One of the traditions in our family has been for each person to tell ‘what-they-are-most-thankful-for’. Over the years, a few of the children take their time seriously confiding in us that they actually wrote down and practiced their list of special things which they are grateful for in their lives. If you don’t already do this, you might want to try it. Guaranteed you will all enjoy it.

It will be difficult, but try your utmost not to gloat with the knowledge that “Pelosi, Schiff, Nadler and Lawfare are in political-extraction-mode. That is, trying to walk backwards to the impeachment exit and only stepping into their prior footprints so that the left-wing nuts cannot identify their retreat.” – Sundance

And, I leave you with one last thought, “If there’s one thing I’ve learned over the years, it’s that you can’t give up on your family, no matter how tempting they make it.” Rick Riordan

Share the love. Enjoy Thanksgiving. We have much to be thankful for. Take a minute, even if quietly to yourself, to thank the Good Lord for giving us President Donald J. Trump. Amen.
