Happy Thanksgiving Everyone
Many of you will be traveling the next couple days and visiting with loved ones. Have a blessed and safe holiday. If you've got family and friends, count your blessings since when all's said and done the people we love are what it's all about.
Most years I search about for displaced people who have no one with whom to share the holiday for whatever reason. The best Thanksgivings and Christmases always seem to be the ones in which we have such special guests. They always bring so much to a gathering. This year I am not hosting so I don't have that liberty. If you find someone who can't make it home for the holiday, take him or her in for me, please. You won't regret it. But make sure he knows that he's doing you the favor by coming to your feast. If he thinks for a minute that he's a charity case, he'll avoid you like the plague (and in the generosity engendered by the holiday you'll forgive the over-used simile, yes?)
So happy Thanksgiving to all my friends in the U.S. and blessings to all my readers from outside the country.
