Here is a favorite photo of 3 of my 4 girls celebrating their good health and goofiness at our nations capital last spring.
I understand, more than anyone, that I have much to be thankful for. However, at the top of my list is the gratitude that my family and friends share good health. I am also grateful that we live in a country that values freedom and choice and has a constitution that supports this concept.
This is my favorite poem by Ralph Waldo E.
For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food,
For love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.
--Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)
