The minister didn’t give thanks . . .
for food or family.
he was thankful for
his freedom to worship . . . or not,
his freedom to pray . . . or not, and
his freedom to give thanks . . . or not.
He said the mystery of Thanksgiving is
how is it possible that
those with so much can be thankful for so little,
when those with nothing can be thankful for everything?
I like to think
whatever success that I have
resulted from being bright and working hard.
But, that ignores luck!
My good luck includes
good family, good friends,
and a great country!
