Almost twenty years ago at an Embassy Thanksgiving dinner in Warsaw our Ambassador asked each of us to share with the gathering one thing for which we were thankful. This year rather than posting Thanksgiving hymns, pictures of the bounty of the harvest, or quotes from various tracts I thought I would once again consider that question.
What is one thing that I am thankful for in my life?
It is difficult to choose amongst so many blessings. I have so much to give thanks for in my life: a loving spouse, a nice home, the HFH, relatively good health, a wonderful country to live in, and a life filled with so much that is good. But if I had to single out one thing that I am most thankful for in my life I would say I am:
Happy Thanksgiving to my family and friends; though we are separated by distance we are close in love and affection.
