It has been a year of blessings as well as trials. Although there are many who will be out shopping on Black Friday, we will not be. We have had much to be thankful for including tree removal, firewood, roof repair, power and so many small things that most overlook. We had a stove to cook a meal. We have a roof over our heads. I’m not sure if there will be much material for Christmas but there is so much more. Good neighbors are priceless and community near and far is valued beyond an electronic device many fight over. Happy Thanksgiving to those near and far.
