Jim G I am thankful for second chances… life… health… loves… good luck… family… friends… dogs… warmth on a cold day… a pension. I will keep counting my blisses as I drive to my family gathering this morning. To my fellow travelers along life’s road…Happy Thanksgiving. Rich in Duluth I feel very fortunate to have popped into existence some years ago, and am able to experience this wondrous, frightening, beautiful world and universe. I have a family that loves and encourages me, am financially able to retire and live without having to work, I am healthy enough to be able to do the things I want to do, and I am living in a country where, for most of its citizens, making a living is just a job and not the life and death struggle that it is for so many others. But I want more. I want the world to be at peace, people to stop hating each other for their differences, historic and actual, and people to realize the benefits to all of us, provided by pooling our resources and working together for the betterment of all of us. Acanthburg Beautifully said! If people were just satisfied with what THEY have then nothing would ever progress….nothing would ever change. PaulJ I’m thankful for the ability to hope for a better afterlife. Carlene Dean Family, friends, having everything I need in this life without really wanting for anything …. except maybe world peace, an end to hunger/homelessness and many other social problems we have in this country of great abundance … I am truly blessed!!!
