It's Thanksgiving Day. And I am very thankful that I woke up this morning, saw the sun come up and was able to hear the birds singing at my mother's house. I can imagine that many who have passed on might have wished to trade places with me. So it may not be a bad idea, at least for today, to be thankful for what you have. And not fret about what you don't have. Take a deep breath and give your worries, which are many, a vacation day. Time to just enjoy some great food, and hopefully, in person, real time with your loved ones. Minus the tablets, smart phones and other gadgets. Note to self: Don't worry (even though all the Twinkies are sold out).
Be thankful and happy today. You were given another Thanksgiving Day.
