Thanksgiving....



Thankfulness! What do we have to be thankful for in these modern times? Is it our technology, our advancement in this modern way of living, maybe a good paying job, or a new car. I know for some people they are thankful for material goods, wealth or advanced position.. Some will be raising their glasses in a toast on this day of thanks for their personal accomplishments and accumulated wealth.. I will be doing the same, but for an entirely different reason. I will offer up a prayer of thanks for my greatest accomplishments, my children, a victory toast for my accumulated wealth, my wife, family and trusted friends, and a thankful moment ,for my health and wellbeing in this great circle of life we are all fortunate to witness. I will relish the life giving breaths I take and remember the creator with a humble heart. For me Thanksgiving is a time of reflection, a time for remembrance and a time for sharing with those we love and cherish. I have family far from here and will think of them often on this day, I am forever thankful to those who defend our freedoms as well as the freedoms of others. I like so many others will fill my belly to overflowing with great foods and will have to scale another mountain to keep my girlish figure afterwards. I ask the creator to bless my fellow humans with humility, love and the gift of living, not just living but of truly being alive.. Happy Thanksgiving to all who read this blog, and thanks to those who have touched my life in a positive way, you know who you are brothers and sisters.. Pilimiya ..Hawk A/ho

Hawk: A beautiful post and you captured the true essence of thanks. Your family is where you will endure, not a job or in wealth accumulated. I wish the best for you and Stacey and the boys. I look forward to your endeavors in the coming year.
