Thank You All – My thoughts of Thanksgiving

I’m not particularly religious but I am extremely spiritual.  I am also not a born citizen of the United States, I am a naturalized citizen.  I say all this because many people believe Thanksgiving to be both, a religious holiday as well as an American Holiday.  Being neither I am still very thankful and I choose to celebrate it.

I wanted to take this time and this small space of the inter web to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving.  Just remember that all you have to do to celebrate and be a part of this great Holiday is to be thankful….. We can all do that.  Try it!!!!!!!
