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)
These words are not my own but the meaning is from the heart. Despite having a normal life with normal complaints I am truly blessed. Everyday is a new day for me, a gift if you will. I try very hard to remember that everyday but during this season especially. This year my heart is full of thanks, mostly for my family.
As a martial artist I have the honor of running a club that is finishing it’s 36th year of continuous operation!! My Father started the club in 1973 and I am grateful that I have been able to continue the tradition he began.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. Stay safe, drive carefully and remember to be thankful.
