There is so much for which I am thankful. My blessings are many and endless. I am thankful for every waking hour, every breath I take and every step I make.
I especially thank God for His saving grace. His love and His mercy. He looked beyond my faults and saw my needs and pulled me from the mire clay. I thank Him for spared life, my family and friends, those who are near and far, and those on Facebook, Twitter, and WordPress. I thank Him for my neighbors and co-workers. I thank Him for governments; Federal, State and Local. I thank Him for the utility companies, and the mail carrier. I thank Him for my church family, and I thank Him for my employer, who took a chance on me and gave me a job. Thank you Lord for everything.
Finally, my brethren, Just like the pilgrims were in early autumn of 1621, I am particularly thankful to God today for the opportunity to live in the greatest country on earth. Despite its sordid past and its problems at home and abroad, the USA is still a beacon, and I would not exchange it for any other country…Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
It is astonishing how time flies! I cannot believe it is one year already since I had started “This Blogging Thing,” an unlikely name for a blog. Yes, my friends, today, September 7, 2012 is exactly one year since This Blogging Thing, and I came together, and we are extremely proud of the union. Things were rough in the beginning. There was a time when we were not sure whether we belonged. However, as the year progressed, we grew closer and closer. Today we are inseparable.
Still, none of this would have been possible without WordPress who has given us the platform and most of all, my beloved blogging buddies, who have embraced and invited us on their computer screens. To all, I would like to say thanks for your support. Your kinds words and encouragement have been tremendously inspiring. For that, I am extraordinarily grateful.
I look forward to your continued support over the next months, and years to come.
