Happy Thanksgiving

By

Well, its a common topic for today. SO here is your obligatory Happy Thanksgiving from me. But I really mean it.

Let me tell you a little about what Thanksgiving means to mean. I am an American, so naturally there is a historical meaning to me as an American. But there is much more meaning for me to the holiday, and really it can be a holiday to everyone.

In my view, Thanksgiving is a day to be thankful for life, health and good fortune. Its a day for me to be thankful for having the friends and family that I have, and to remember those friends and family I have lost. I lost one of my 2 best friends a few months ago to a motorcycle accident, so my thoughts turned to him today frequently, especially since in prior years he was a fixture at my Thanksgiving dinner table.

I also thought alot about the good fortune I have ad working on the internet the last 5 years. I spent 20 years in the restaurant business prior and really became involved in the internet by accident. It has grown into a business I am very fortunate to have.

I am also thanksful for the family I have. My brother spent the day with me today – My father is out of the country (he is a snowbird)but my thoughts turned to him as well. I thought of my late mother and grandmother also today as they too were once fixtures at my thanksgiving dinner table.

What I wish for is that we as Americans could be better understood in the world. As a people, we dont really like war or feeling threatened, and we dont like having to create war or threatening others. The world of the last few years has been a pretty dangerous place, and my wish is that we could all get past that and learn to live with and respect each other a little bit more.

So I hope you all had a good thanksgiving, and I hope you had the opportunity to spend it with some people you care about and who care about you.

    Good day!!! Happy Thanksgiving!!!! 🙂 🙂
    Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays, and every yr I like to get into the mood-extend the holiday, when it were-by reading “Thanksgiving novels.” For example, these stories are mostly about family and friends, about coming together to heal old hurts and getting thanks for the gift of love. … -=
