Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.  I hope you have family to share this day with.  If not, I hope you can go somewhere to enjoy a special meal and be around people.  David and I usually eat at Cracker Barrel in Brookhaven, but today we have half of our family here.  We’re thankful for many blessings, whether we have family or not.  Be sure to take time to “Count Your Blessings” and the the One who provided you with so much materially and eternally.
