Happy Thanksgiving

This year I am grateful for the additions to our family, my teenage brother and sister-in-law, Manuel and Milagro, Irina, an 18-year-old family friend who came to live with us, and my father who is on his way up from Long Island. The kitchen is merry with girls cooking our traditional Thanksgiving feast, the house is spotless and fragrant, and our spirits are high. We are taking out the good china, and linen, putting logs in the fireplace, and preparing for a fun weekend. Life is good.
I don't know what the future holds, there are rumblings on the horizon which threaten to make this year one which we will look back upon fondly. Maybe things won't be so prosperous next year, maybe some family members will be missing or in poor health.
So, its especially important to count our blessings and give thanks to Almighty God for those who surround us, our prosperity, and for our safe, free nation.

Hi Leticia:
I just read Father Bob's blog about Christina!!! Wow! What a blessing. I had a young friend, Angela, years ago whose familypoured their lives in her - tennis, reading, etc. and when she graduated from high school (Allendale, NJ) she went on to b local business school. I remember watching her set up for a tennis shot - like Chrissy Evert!!
It was all due to input of a loving family and kind friends.

Best regards,
