We have MUCH to be Thankful for.
I have a lot to be thankful for.
I am thankful for my Family. My Mother for giving birth to me. My Wife who takes good care of me. My Sons Joshua and Elijah. Of whom I again can see the world through the eyes of a Child. A World of Magic and Miracles. Innocent and pure.
I am thankful for my Job, in a time so many are struggling to find one.
I am thankful for my friends and those that I care about, who care about me. Those that I know better than they know themselves, and those that know ME, and have no problem laughing when I laugh, crying when I cry, leaning on me when they need, and walking side by side with me through ANYTHING life brings. The whole time, being completely Honest with me, on all things.
I am thankful for being born an American. Born into the greatest country on Earth. Thankful for our Freedoms.
The Freedom to be whatever I chose to be. In a land where our Poor, have homes, cars, cell phones. On Average two TVs, Computers, and a means to an education. In a World who's poor live in huts, with no toilets, running water, or electric.
The Freedom to speak out against our Leader's Policies, without fear of punishment and death.
The Freedom to DREAM, and the ABILITY to achieve that dream.
The Freedom to believe. To practice whatever Faith I believe in, anytime and anywhere I chose.
I am thankful for the Men and Women, who stand up, leave their Families, and put their dreams on hold, to take an Oath, to defend those Freedoms. Those that understand that Freedom is NEVER given freely. It is ALWAYS taken and defended by force. Those that are willing to pay the ultimate price, including the laying down of their own lives, for that freedom.
But most importantly, I am thankful to God, for Life itself. For without that, we would have NOTHING.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone. I hope you have a happy and healthy Holiday. Just remember, even those with the least, have MUCH to be thankful for.
