Be Thankful

On this Thanksgiving morning 2010, I have many blessings to count and no matter what your station is in life, I bet you do too, if you look around and think about it for a minute. If your reading this then you probably have a roof over your head, food to eat, your probably not living in hut with a dirt floor and hopefully, although the weather might be bitter where you are, your not being ravaged by some natural disaster. If your in America, then even if your homeless you have more options then people in third world countries. I’ve met lawyers and electrical engineers from other countries that made more money in America washing dishes and cleaning rooms then working in their chosen profession in their homeland. I think we all have a lot to be thankful for.
Wishing you good health and a life full of joy!

A word about prayer

I am not a very religious person. I like to say that I’m where Christianity, Taoism and Buddhism meet. Ha,ha!!! I will say, if you want to better your situation or are concerned about a person or situation, then pray. I am here to say that prayer works. It doesn’t have to be my god or anybody Else's god , it doesn’t have to be to god at all. You can pray to the heavens, the sun, moon or a tree. Just pray!
Start out by being thankful. No matter how low we get, there are things to be thankful for. A beautiful sun rise or sun set, the moon and the stars, the roof over our heads, the bed that gives us comfort. Be thankful for the sun and the rain that nourishes our crops so plants can bear food for our table. Be thankful for the food on your table, the friends and loved ones no matter how imperfect they may be. Be thankful for the past prayers that have been answered, miracles and good things in your life. then pray for good things to happen. Its not a sin to pray for success and good things to come to you. Try it! It works!
