A Note of Thanks
I’m leaving town to spend the holiday with family. The long drive and traffic will be forgotten once I’m in their presence. In fact, whatever is unpleasant is usually forgotten. An ebullient atmosphere pervades our get-togethers.
Thanksgiving is a good reminder to us to be thankful. Life is a gift. Some people get dubious gifts to begin with, sometimes as a result of family tradition. Or poor conditions in the production process. Damaged gifts, whether from carelessness or bad luck, can be redeemed. Life ... it's a puzzle ... it's a gift.
