Happy Thanksgiving

To all my friends and family, I wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving. As we in America set aside a day to give thanks and be grateful for all of our many blessings, I hope everyone takes time to reflect on the meaning of the day.

Today I am thankful for my loving family, my faith and the freedom to practice it, my health, for my friends, and for all the freedoms I enjoy as an American. In these times we should be especially conscious of our freedoms, as we are reminded frequently just how tenuous they are. Let's not forget those who serve us at home and abroad. 

I pray that the meaning of this day is not forgotten or lost in the hunt for good deals at the big box stores. If shopping is your thing this holiday, take time to think about why you are able to do that. As I sorted through the newsprint I carried in this morning to find something that wasn't an ad, it struck me that I've heard nothing about Thanksgiving in the past days, only about "Black Friday."

Whatever you do today, however you choose to mark the day, I wish you the best and hope your holiday is filled with joy.


  1. Happy Thanksgiving!

    Hope to see you exercising those rights you're thankful for tomorrow at the IDPA match.

  2. Probably can't make it, but a range trip remains a possibility. You shooting?

  3. Happy Thanksgiving!!! Some of my family are already in line for Black thank you. Of course they do have my ATM card incase they run accross a deal on ammo:)

    1. AGirl, proxies. Good idea. :-) We shopped for ammo yesterday and electronics today. All online.

      Happy Thanksgiving!
