Happy Thanksgiving

What am I thankful for?  I’m thankful for thanksgiving, both the national holiday and the perspective.  We take a day off, watch the Lions lose, spend time around a table topped with turkey and terrific tasty treats that attach to our thighs.

Not literally, of course.

Today I’m just plain thankful.  We always thank God whenever we avert danger, barely make it or come within inches of losing our lives.  But when the plane lands safely, the stairs aren’t slippery and the tests come back normal — who do we thank then?

Not the turkey, I can tell you that much.
