Happy Thanksgiving everyone! In Iowa my friends have all completed their harvests for the year. Some OK, many very poor – yet they are all thankful for what this year has brought. Farmers teach many great lessons to those of us not plying that craft – and being truly thankful (regardless of the size of a year’s harvest) one of them.
Our family continues to be blessed -
- A new granddaughter this Spring
- Good health all around
- The ability to work on a daily basis
- An abundance of loving friends
- A strong faith community that freely shares God’s love
- And much, much more
Personally, through more grumbling than I probably should do, I have been blessed with a customer base that remains loyal and more “friend” than client. I’ve made many new friends through this little space on the Internet that feel like family after a few short months. I continue to enjoy the love of a wife that has seen fit to share my life for over 46 years – a deeply humble thought and something I am grateful for each and every day. And I am blessed with children who understand the love of a good mate and how to return that love and with grandchildren who truly understand how to exhaust old Grandpa and share their love with him.
And finally, I am grateful for all those on duty worldwide so we may enjoy a peaceful and secure day today – and every day. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
Finally, for my daughter – “Thank you God for carrots!!”
Enjoy your day folks, make it a good one!
