This and that: Thanksgiving.

He who thanks but with the lips
Thanks but in part:
The full, the true Thanksgiving 
Comes from the heart.
J.A. Shed

As I sit here this morning, thinking of Thanksgiving...
I fill blessed for so many things.
First to God as with out Him we would have nothing to be thankful for.
Then to our country and those who put their life's on the line everyday to keep our country safe and free.
Then to my family and friends...
Everyone of you brings joy to my life in a special way.

This is a special Thanksgiving for me 
Although I have lived here in United States for 12 years.
This year I am an American! 
We need to be thankful and not only for today that we live in a country that is free...
that we are given the freedom of religion,
the freedom of speech,

May each and everyone of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
