It seems to me that the whole season between Thanksgiving and Christmas is a time to remind us to be thankful. Some may say you should be thankful all the time and that is true, but this time of year really brings it to mind in a special way. I think we can start by being thankful for the everyday things like food and shelter. A job and family and friends. We can work up from there to Christmas when we remember the greatest thing of all to be thankful for. Jesus, the son of God, came in the flesh as a baby who grew up and gave himself for all of us so our sins could be forgiven. What greater thing is there to be thankful for?
I hope all of you that read this will not only be thankful but thank those who made you that way. I plan to show my family how thankful I am to be here. I gave my mistress a nice lick on the cheek and I let my sister Skeeter keep her dog cookie without chasing her and trying to get it for myself. I am also trying not to bark and irritate the neighbors. I am thankful for my home and family.
