I got up this morning and started cooking with my wife. Three of our children are here and two will be arriving soon. These are the memories that I take to my heart. These are the memories that I will keep with me for as long as I live.
My hope is that all of you are able to be with love ones today and enjoy a fine meal with family and friends. I ask that all of you remember that many can not be with their families today. They are far away, some in harms way. To them I say, Godspeed home and Thank You for everything. For those who are caught away from home due to circumstances, to them I say I am sorry for your circumstances and I hope that next year brings you better fortunes.
To all I say Happy Thanksgiving.
"If turkeys thought, they'd run away,
A week before Thanksgiving Day.
But turkeys can't anticipate,
And so there's turkey on my plate!"
