A THANKSGIVING WISH ....

HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!

I know you are all preparing for a special feast, as you should, so this post will be short and sweet. Today is when we all give thanks for all the blessings in our live. Family, friends, our homes, and health are all precious to us. We are so fortunate to be able to cozy up in our homes to give thanks.

I can't help but think of all the poor families affected by SANDY and the flash flooding throughout the country. My wish for them is for peace of mind and to hang on to the thought that people do care and they will get through it.

After living in Florida for so many years, I lived through ANDREW, WILMA, KATRINA, etc. Horrific disasters, but we all helped each other. That's when people's true compassion is revealed. It/s amazing how much the communities banded together to get through the tough times. We all hear about the negative behavior of society. The news is SPLASHED with it, but at times like these I like to dwell on all the Earthly Angels and good hearted people that help the misfortunate.

Today, when you can take a brief moment, say a prayer. The power of prayer can be an amazing thing. Afterwards, take your family into you arms and give them a BIG HUG.... There is NOTHING more important than family....

Have FANTASTIC weekend everyone... and for the RECORD... I am thankful for ALL OF YOU! You lift my spirits when I am down and ALWAYS there for me through the good and bad times. I always smile just knowing you are here!

SENDING A VITUAL HUG to all of YOU!

  25. I worked all Thanksgiving and on through the weekend usually solo. I slept for most of Monday and Tuesday -- so that it is why it has taken me so long to visit and say you, my friend, are one of the people I am most thankful for! :-)

  27. I agree, that one's true character is revealed in times of crisis--I love to see what miracles can happen even just by one person. I know I've had numerous angels in my life--some I will never see their face, but I will always be thankful for.

    Such a lovely post, Michael. But you are always so giving! :D

  28. I think it's too bad the news doesn't share more stories about people doing good/nice things. I wonder what might happen if they did.
