Giving thanks

November 23, 2009 - Bill Speer
I am a lucky man. I have my health, I have a job and I have a wonderful family.

I go home each evening to a warm house. I don't wonder where I will lay my head tomorrow. I always have a warm meal.

I feel blessed. I don't deserve any of these gifts God has given me - yet he has blessed me as if I'm a millionaire. Every morning that I sit along Thunder Bay watching the sunrise is like a new deposit into my life's account from God.

President Theodore Roosevelt told the country in a Thanksgiving message years ago "Let us remember that, as much has been given us, much will be expected from us..."

This Thanksgiving as we give pause for our many blessings, let us also remember that somewhere in our region a person went without a warm meal today, someone doesn't have a warm home to go home to, or a job, or their health.

And in this special holiday season between Thanksgiving and Christmas, let us remember President Roosevelt's words and this year, let us do all that we can to make our corner of the world a little warmer, a little brighter, a litte happier.

Our thanks can translate into someone else's hope.
