Our pastor likes to say if you were born in the United States, in the Midwest, during this century, you have pretty much won the lottery. I don't think he is saying this proudly or with any other intent than to say that wow, we are blessed with so much, with so much more than many others have and we haven't done one single thing to deserve that. Yet, we have the nerve to complain about the long pick up lines at school while we are sitting in our nice warm cars, picking up our healthy, well-fed children as we check the weather on our cell phones. And believe me, I am guilty as charged. I don't think I will ever have enough appreciation for the blessings I have or for the God that has given them too me. But, today I'm gonna try. Happy Thanksgiving!
