I'm kidding, I am thankful for so many things, family, friends, faith, health, country, and those are just the blessings I recognize, I'm sure there are more that I don't even notice...

My family and my wife's family are all coming to our house, with the exception of my wife's brothers' family. Should be about 18 of us. Looking at the food and the menu, anyone on this forum that doesn't have plans please feel free to swing in. Foods on at noon. I do believe we have enough food to feed about forty.

We will be making the rounds to both sets of parents this weekend. We'll start tomorrow at my folks in Claremore, OK, then be at wife's folks in Bartlesville, OK later Friday thru Sunday. My in-laws are great to be around, so I always look forward to visiting BOTH sides. It's a blessing!

This Thanksgiving, be sure to reflect back through this past year, and take a moment to remember all of those who may not have been able to be here this year, and cherish the memories that you have of them. Keep all of the soldiers in your thoughts and prayers, and say a special blessing for them, as most of them can't be with their loved ones over the Holidays. While sitting around the table, take a look around, and be Thankful for all of the blessings that we take for granted each and every day, like the roof over your head, the food provided for dinner, your family members, or maybe just the air that you breathe. Ask God to touch the families that may have lost their jobs this year, and are finding it hard to stay ahead, or possibly not able to have a full dinner like the one fixed in front of you. Be Thankful that your job and your income is holding steady, and remember the ones out on the street that have nothing. Be proud to be an American when the news comes on, broadcasting about all of the fighting going on in other countries, and wonder what they're Thanksgiving will be like tomorrow.
We have a lot to be Thankful for this year, but always remember that the next year may not be as pleasant. Now is the time to cherish the blessings, remember the lost, and enjoy what you have to the fullest, as it can all be taken away in a matter of an instant.
