I would like to wish everyone Happy Thanksgiving. Traditionally Thanksgiving is a day of giving thanks for the blessing of the harvest. This tradition has been transformed over the centuries by pies, cookies and football games. Thanksgiving as it has been officially called for the past 480 years has, in the purest sense been a time of Thanks and a gathering of loved ones to share a meal that has been blessed upon them from the preceding harvest. This year on the 150th year American’s have officially celebrated Thanksgiving by Presidential decree, I will be preparing Thanksgiving dinner at home for the first time since moving to West Virginia in June of 2000. It is a momentous occasion which marks the beginning of a new tradition and the end of 12 years of wonderful memories of Thanksgiving with family and loved ones. Life is replete with turning points and endings, and all things, good or bad must come to an end. This Thanksgiving marks the end of a wonderful tradition of food, friends, family and the wonderful joyous memories I have of them which will serve to comfort me for the rest of my days. I am now opening a new chapter in life in what I hope will be many more glorious days of Thanks surrounded by those I love. Today, as with every day, I am thankful for life, for the food which nourishes my body and of loved ones past and present whose memories serve to nourish my soul and the freedom to enjoy it all. I am thankful for the selfless deeds of our men and women in the Armed Forces whose sacrifice gives me the freedom to enjoy these blessings. May God look upon them and keep them safe on this sacred day of Thanks. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone and may God bless you all.
