Day 26 – Thanksgiving Day
I shouldn’t be online updating a blog on Thanksgiving Day, and neither should you be reading blogs today, but who am I to tell you what to do? (smile) I’ll keep it short, then let’s go spend time with family and friends.
I’ve already shared much of what I’m thankful for on this blog, so today I’m especially thankful for the great country I live in. I’m thankful for the men and women who risked their lives crossing oceans, and left behind their own heritage to begin something new–the Christopher Columbus’s of the world, and all who followed in that wake.
Without their courage and willingness to step out in faith (I’m sure many called it foolishness), our lives would not be as they are. It’s hard to imagine where each of us would be if nobody crossed the ocean blue.
