life and salvation gifts from God, liberty provided for in the United States, the pursuit of happiness with each and every breath and food, yes I am thankful for the food we are blessed to eat. This year I am thankful for a successful relocation and the combining of two houses into one. I am thankful for all the clothes in my closet and the ability to wear them. I am thankful God blessed me with a thinking mind and I can see through the poorly disguised attempts to distort truth into something convoluted and perverse in today’s society. I am thankful it is not all about me. I am thankful for good friends who help me keep things in perspective and challenge me and my thinking. I am thankful for friend and family and God and his mercy.
