Town Talk II
Let us give thanks. We should do that every day, not just on Thanksgiving turkey day. I'm thankful for the many things I do not have as well as for the things I have. I am distressed to see that as though Black Friday isn't bad enough we have morphed now into Pre-Black Friday sales. It is ridiculous. This Thanksgiving I will be able to see all five of my children. That will be blessing enough for me. Hope you all have a safe, blessed, bountiful Thanksgiving.
