Today I am thankful for.....
« on: November 27, 2008, 03:27:43 PM »
my family is all stateside and safe.
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

...for the fact I'm still alive.  At my Sister-in-Law's urging I tried to recount all the times I've had very close calls with death.  She had 25 items on her list before I stopped because it was just so rediculous to continue.

...Also for my family and for the opportunity they represent for leaving some type of contribution to this world.

              I don't mean those to sound selfish,,,It's just, well...it's just hard to explain.

Brian, you do not come on as being selfish at all, don't think that way.

Kathy, thank you for starting this thread.

This is something that we should be grateful for.  A day in our life where we can be thankful/grateful.

Everyone will have something to be thankful for.  I am thankful each day that I wake up, knowing that I have a life to live.

Upon the advice of Opra, many years ago I kept a grateful book, every day I entered a writing about something I was grateful for, and there are many things.  Have a wonderful and grateful day, great health.  Cindi
There are strange things done in the midnight sun by the men who moil for gold.  The Arctic trails have their secret tales that would make your blood run cold.  The Northern Lights have seen queer sights, but the queerest they ever did see, what the night on the marge of Lake Lebarge, I cremated Sam McGee.  Robert Service

I'm grateful for so many things, many of them so simple. What a wonderful time of the year.
