WHAT AM I THANKFUL FOR?
I am thankful for our soldiers, who put themselves on the line without hesitation or relief. May you you find peace and support with your loved ones as quickly as possible.
I am thankful for our peace officers, who strive to hold themselves to both the letter and the spirit of the law to truly serve and protect all. May you flourish in light and grace ..
I am thankful for our fire fighters, who rush into hells that others flee. May your angels always be at your side, wrapping you in their protective wings.
I am thankful for our emergency responders, who give their all no matter the situation in which they find themselves. May you be cloaked in the the love and gratitude of those you've touched.
I am thankful for our educators, who struggle against every foe that they may prepare our children to achieve the best of their potential. May your fulfillment also be your security.
I am thankful for our care takers who endeavor to refill the cups of others, often at the expense of their own. If ever it is in my capacity to lighten your load, I hope that I have the strength of character to do so.
I am thankful for those of you who offer a smile, a nod, a thank you, or excuse me. The smallest gesture can mean so much. It is often the only reason to smile when a day has been too hard.
Yes, I am thankful.
