Happy Thanksgiving

Postby Derek » Thu Nov 22, 2018 3:07 pm

It's difficult in today's age, when we are told there is so much we don't have (usually spoken with political motives), to maintain an 'Attitude of Gratitude'. But I hope that when you lay your head on the pillow tonight you will have at least once either prayerfully thanked or simply dwelled for a moment on all we have in this country.

Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor—and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me “to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.”

It is a Great Day of Thanksgiving. Our life has changed, but so grateful being with Mrs. Donovan. Thankful for my friends on this board.

And specifically thankful today for everyone's picks because it is the beginning of the decline for you all.

I paused here for a moment of all the things that have happened in my life in the past 12 years on this board. Sometime I will list them. The board may have been the only consistent item.

Happy Thanksgiving.
As I age it is hard to tell if I am inspired by reasoned passion or arthritic knees; most likely it is arthritic reasoning.

When turkey is on the table,
and all the good things that I scan,
I thank thee O Lord that I am not......

Happy Thanksgiving to all..... 8)
The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you too. —before I go into deep mourning tomorrow over the state of Buckeye Football.
