I have been thinking of all that I am thankful for. I am, of course, thankful for all the usual suspects—my husband, my children and grandchildren, friends, and all of my family—a warm home and a full belly. But thoughts flow into my mind about this astonishing country we live in. The Founding Fathers and Mothers who sacrificed to create this “Great Experiment” are in the forefront this Thanksgiving weekend. Also, all those who have held onto and fought for this belief throughout the years. The belief that anyone, anyone, can achieve great things. It doesn’t matter where you were born or if your family has an illustrious pedigree. You set your goals, stretch yourself beyond your limits, and make your dreams come true!
The least of us can become the best of us. For this I am grateful, thankful, and feel so blessed not only today but every single day.
