I give thanks...

I love Christmas, but I also believe that Christmas season starts the day AFTER Thanksgiving. Although I enjoy Starbucks gingerbread lattes, what's up with all the holiday decor & music before Thanksgiving?! As one of my friends put it, "Why the rush to start thinking about the holiday all about splurging & forgetting the holiday to give thanks?"

In ths spirit of this holiday, I give thanks to God for....

...the continued support & love from my family....
...the safety of a warm house and stable living conditions....
...the opportunity to learn about this world & work on issues that I care about...
...the circle of friends who are a source of joy and comfort to me....
...the Mercy & Love of God in guiding & supporting me in my endeavors....


Happy Thanksgiving
