I have seen and read so many beautiful offerings of Thanksgiving. 
They are both thought provoking and inspiring. 
Thank you for adding to my blessings.

I am thankful that my LORD gave us his WORD and that my family passed it down to me.

I am humbly thankful for my family. 
My parents and my grandparents were
 salt of the earth, hardworking people
 who loved God,  family and country. 
They graciously gifted their ethics and faith
to me. 
My present family is such a blessing, my husband of 52 years, my children and grandchildren. 
I treasure the opportunity to pass the gift
 I received, during my early childhood, by supporting and celebrating the dreams, goals and accomplishments of each precious spirit entrusted to my life experience. 
I have faith that these precious souls, with whom I share so much joy, will continue to pass on the gift.  
I AM, humbly, thankful for my 

I count each of you as FAMILY. 
You are what America is all about. 
No cookie cutters here. Individuals with different cultures, faiths, hopes and dreams. Still... FAMILY. 
We are all here for a reason, together.
That reason....To pass it on.

May each of my new friends and all those I have yet to meet have a blessed
