I am thankful for the health and well-being of my family and loved ones.

I am thankful that I am alive, happy, and retain all my necessary organs and appendages.

I am thankful that I am blessed to live in the United States of America — truly the greatest nation on Earth — where we still remain free.

I am thankful for the Pilgrims, the colonists, our founding fathers, and thankful that I know liberal revisionist history is codswollop.

I am thankful that my Congressman, Dave Reichert, won, and that Al Franken may yet fail to steal a senate seat in Minnesota.

I am thankful that I am blessed with everything I need: food, drink, warmth, heat, light, clothing and healthcare, and many comforts above and beyond that which I require.

I am deeply thankful for my neighbors; good people and good friends who are facing very difficult times.

I am thankful for our armed forces who keep us safe at great peril and sacrifice. And I am so thankful and happy that they have prevailed and won the war in Iraq, and achieved great victories in Afghanistan.

It is highly out of fashion at present, but I am still very thankful for President Bush and Vice-President Cheney.

I am thankful for the wisdom I gain every day from others.

I am thankful for all of our readers.

I am thankful for fresh apple cider, thick socks and down pillows.

I am thankful that I have more blessings than I can count here.

And I am thankful that there is a God in Heaven who loves us, and has blessed each and every one of us, no matter our circumstances, which we would all realize if only we would take the time to be thankful.

Happy Thanksgiving!
