Happy Thanksgiving

Today is Thanksgiving;  Today we will travel near and far to visit our family or they will come to us depending on the arrangements.  Today we need to give thanks that we are still in America and we can still enjoy the times with our families.  With all that is going on right now we need to take a breath, step back from all the news and remind ourselves that family is important.  Today we need to take a break from all the drama going on in the world and spend time with our family.  There comes a point that we must leave some of this in Gods hands.  I find myself inundated with the news and what is going on in the world and with all the work I have been doing and I am finding out that I am mentally tired.  I turned down Overtime.....shockers I know.   Today we need to spend time with family or those that you consider family.

"Norman Rockwell Thanksgiving"

“Good morning, everyone. You know, the Statue of Liberty and this wonderful holiday called Thanksgiving go together naturally because although as Americans we have many things for which to be thankful, none is more important than our liberty. Liberty: that quality of government, that brightness of mind and spirit for which the Pilgrim Fathers braved the seas and Americans for two centuries have laid down their lives.
 
“Today, while religion is suppressed in perhaps one third of the world, we Americans are free to worship the Almighty as we choose. While entire nations must endure the yoke of tyranny, we are free to speak our minds, to enjoy an unfettered and vigorous press, and to make government abide by the limits we deem just. While millions live behind walls, we remain free to travel throughout the land to share this precious day with those we love most deeply – the members of our families."
 
“My fellow Americans, let us keep this Thanksgiving Day sacred. Let us thank God for the bounty and goodness of our nation. And as a measure of our gratitude, let us rededicate ourselves to the preservation of this: the land of the free and the home of the brave."
 
“From the Reagan family to your family: happy Thanksgiving and God bless you all.”
