Giving Thanks

It is the day after Thanksgiving here in Massena. After a self imposed day off of the web I am sitting here in the afterglow of hot coffee and leftover pumpkin pie, what very well may be one of the best breakfasts ever.

While browsing all of my favorite blogs I came across a post on Elise's Simply Recipes that made me stop and think.

I have a lot to be thankful for.

My Red Sox took the pennant. For this I am happy (perhaps even giddy).

My Patriots are running over all of the other teams in the NFL. For this I am appreciative of thier overwhelming skill, determination and teamwork.

There are a large number of alternatively powered vehicles that will be hitting the showroom floors in the next couple of years. For this I am anticipating freeing the choke hold of the oil driven world.

But am I thankful for these? Well, sort of. But they really are not that important.

I am really thankful for my family, my health and the good graces thatGod has granted us over the years.

I hope that this holiday season finds you content in what you have, not too envious of what you don't and with a sense of inner peace in the world in which you live.
