Good Morning and Happy Thanksgiving! Today is one of my favorite Holidays.

I must say that this is the strangest Thanksgiving I have seen in a long time. It's a strange crossroad we find ourselves in this year. So many things that are scary and frightening and yet, so much to really be grateful for. I do not think that I am alone in feeling thankful that our nation has chosen a leader that will tackle the problems at hand with the rest of the country. We can be thankful that grownups are going to be in charge in just a few short weeks. The road ahead will long, and difficult, but at least we have leaders coming that recognize it and truly want to make things better.

I am grateful for family and friends. This year Bob and I were blessed with a new niece and nephew. A wonderful dog came into our life, Kizzy, and in the past few weeks Missy the cat showed up to, with the new kittens not far behind. It has been an amazing time.

Our Children, born to us, or in our families, will come to know a world that is not dominated by war and terror everyday. Many Children will come to know 9/11 as something in a history book instead of the beginning of every sentence from our leaders. These are wonderful things.

I am most thankful for you, my extended family. We have been thru a lot together. We have been lucky to have our F4 family grow together over the past year or so and I hope that we will have many more wonderful times together. It's a wonderful thing to have a place to come and not have to worry about well, things.

So today, I raise a glass to you, to America, to our troops, to the children, to all those that have gone before us and all that will come after and I say thank you for these blessings, and for the blessings that are already on the way.

Happy Thanksgiving.
:peace: and
Raine
