Happy Thanksgiving

happy-thanksgiving-animated-graphic
Thanksgiving is here, so our minds have turned
To what time has taught us, to what we’ve learned:
We often focus all our thought
On shiny things we’ve shopped and bought.
We take our pleasure in material things,
Forgetting the pleasure that friendship brings.
If a lot of our stuff just vanished today,
We’d see the foundation of each happy day
Is special relationships, constant and true,
And that’s when our thoughts go directly to you.
We wish you a Thanksgiving you’ll never forget,
Full of love and joy—your best one yet!

I hope everyone has a safe but fun Halloween!

Stay Warm! Don’t eat too much candy.

Watch out for children and pets on the streets and sidewalks!

Honoring All Veterans

“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation
is not to utter words, but to live by them.”
– John Fitzgerald Kennedy
“This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave.”

And I’m proud to be an American,
where at least I know I’m free.
And I won’t forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.
-Lee Greenwood
