Above is an image of a Norman Rockwell Thanksgiving. It reminds me of what family and friends mean to me. Laden with food and special adornment, this family appears to be exceptionally happy and content.
We are living in a time when uncertainty is the norm. Unemployment, homelessness, hunger and sadness plague more Americans than ever. Our concerns for our children's future are real.
Today we celebrate Thanksgiving -- a day for family and friends to be together. For many, it is the only time during the year that everyone will be together -- for many others, there is no Thanksgiving.
Enjoy the day with those close to you and pray for those less fortunate. Look around and make sure that those around you have a place to go for Thanksgiving. This day is all about togetherness and sharing.
Happy Thanksgiving from my family to yours.
