Thanksgiving Day in the Country


"Thanksgiving" is celebrated in the US always on the last Thursday in the Month of November.

I am thankful for many many things, to many to count them all here, most of all I am thankful for my wonderful family and my friends and wish everyone a "Happy Thanksgiving Day", even if it is not your own personal day to give thanks.
The following, is a an e-mail I received today:
"Gisela --

When Michelle and I sit down with our family to give thanks today, I want you to know that we'll be especially grateful for folks like you.
Everything we have been able to accomplish in the last two years was possible because you have been willing to work for it and organize for it.
And every time we face a setback, or when progress doesn't happen as quickly as we would like, we know that you'll be right there with us, ready to fight another day.

So I want to thank you -- for everything.

I also hope you'll join me in taking a moment to remember that the freedoms and security we enjoy as Americans are protected by the brave men and women of the United States Armed Forces. These patriots are willing to lay down their lives in our defense, and each of us owes them and their families a debt of gratitude.

Have a wonderful day, and God bless.
