Giving thanks.........

This year our family has had some health scares.

In one case recently, we dodged a bullet but in the other we weren't so fortunate.

My little fishing buddy Alex has leukemia and is having a rough go of it.

I am not writing this for sympathy but rather to ask that this Thanksgiving you give a loved one a hug that is long overdue, thank your family and friends for being there when others weren't or tell those pain in the ass relatives that you appreciate them despite the fact they drive you crazy (this is a tough one I know).

Perhaps you call, email or text a friend that you haven't spoken to in some time and wish them a Happy Thanksgiving (I just did it and got an immediate response from my friend).

Life is precious and time is fleeting...........enjoy your time with loved ones while you can.

Happy Thanksgiving.


  1. Thanks for the words of wisdom Mac! I certainly have some fences to mend after a contentious election. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

  2. You are welcome Howard.

    It was a tough election but somehow the country survives no matter whose candidate wins. That seems to be one of the many beauties of this country.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family too.

  3. Happy Thanksgiving Ed.
    A prayer for Alex.

    1. Hi Alan.....thank you for keeping Alex in your prayers. It is greatly appreciated. He is only three and it breaks my heart to think of him sick.

      I hope that you and your family have a great and Happy Thanksgiving.

  4. Well said! Happy Thanksgiving

  5. Thank you Seth.

    I hope you have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving.
