For All These Things...

I made it back from Captain's Career Course a little over two weeks ago, and have been busy at my civilian job since.  I don't love my current job, but it pays the bills.  Without hopefully sounding too much like a motivational speaker, one of the things that can really transform a life is an attitude of thankfulness.

We in the US have it so good compared to most of the rest of the world.  Even with the economic setbacks we have had in recent years, and despite some idiotic political policies that will be coming home to roost (pay people to have more children?  Sure!  Why not?), we still have a lot for which to be thankful.

I am thankful for all the good things in my life, for warmth and companionship and love.  Happy Thanksgiving, y'all.

And hello and best wishes to you from Matt's mother, one of five of his ladies around the table. Dale made the yeast rolls, Allie the cherry pie Holly made the mini pecan muffins, the green bean casserole and other stuff. It was not only family but community, and I wish you could have been here. If ever you can be, you are welcome.
