A Month of Thankfulness

It's November, again; how did that happen?

November means Thanksgiving, which is, of course, the time to celebrate and appreciate all of the things with which we have been blessed. I've never had a hard time being thankful for my blessings but I think it's important to also express that thankfulness, out loud. And, publicly.

So, for each day of the next month, I will try to express one thing for which I am thankful. Sometimes, there will be more than one because, let's face it; I have been incredibly blessed.

Today, I am thankful for living in a community of such awesome teenagers. This was especially apparent to me last night at our ASTRA club's fundraising dance at the High School, where, over the course of two-and-a-half hours, I watched teenagers treating each other with courtesy and kindness in a social situation that can sometimes be fraught with opportunities for hurt feelings and embarrassment.

Those kids were awesome, and, that's all I'm going to say about that.
