Here on Rattlesnake Ridge there is much to be thankful for. Even if the circumstances that surround the celebration of that thanks are unusual.
A traditional Thanksgiving just wasn't in the cards this year. But sometimes its good to strip away all the traditions and focus on what is so very important... counting your very real blessings that actually have nothing to do with food... or money... or comfort.
Oh we have those things and we are Thankful for them... but there is much more to be thankful for than these. We are thankful to Him... for eternity.
Just as the Grinch couldn't stop Christmas... neither can Thanksgiving be stopped.
Take away the turkey and dressing and pecan pie... God forbid.. take away the hashbrown casserole and the glazed ham... take away the football... even take away the family and friends... and still we give thanks.
We give thanks.
