Happy Thanksgiving

We are so blessed as a nation and as a people. Each day I wake up to see our flag flying and each night go to bed knowing it will be there in the morning. Of all of the many blessings in our lives, this is the greatest... that we born Americans, by God's Amazing Grace.

We are also blessed to live in a nation where so many volunteer to protect and to defend us. We will ever be grateful to the young men and women who serve our country. This year, they are deployed around the world ~ many in the most dangerous places in the world. They serve to keep us safe and free.

We have many more blessings in our lives ~ but without this nation and the troops who protect it, I don't believe we would have as many blessings.

Happy Thanksgiving to all, but especially to those who serve and to those who wait at home.

May God's Blessings be with all of you.

That photo is great. Interesting how you captured the sun rising, or setting, over the mountain.

The flag holds the same significance for me.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving blessings to you, too, Mike and Yankeemom!

Actually, that is late afternoon while a truly awful wildfire was raging - beauty in the midst of disaster. It is looking west.
