A time for Thanksgiving
This week I thought I would go a different direction
instead of a political story I was about 13-14
years old we were at my grandmother's house in Sunnyvale
california.Everyone was sitting around the table she
had placed a couple peas on each plate. My grandmother
then asked everyone as she went around the table
what two things they were thankful for.This made a
profound impact on me. I don't remember what of
anything I said at the time, it has not happened
again.I wish everyone had the opportunity to experience
this each year at thanksgiving.
It would make a lot of us think more about what we
have and what we can do to make a difference
I know politically things don't look to good right
now in Washington state.They will get better I know it
Just remember there are many things outside of politics
to be thankful for.Don't give up the fun is about to
I am thankful for Dino Rossi because of him the
economy is doing quite well in the state of Washington.
I am also thankful for conservative republicans like
Mark Hulst,Kirby Wilbur, Doug Parris and many others
who keep fighting to turn around the state party.
Its a big job but someone has to do it.
I am very thankful for God our father and Jesus Christ
who through the lds church have made a lasting impact on
my life I know this is the true church as god has
manifested it unto me.This I will never deny.
Finally I am extremely thankful for my wonderful friend
Susan Hutchison who has turned my life upside down and made
me a better person.There aren't many people like Susan
She has helped more than she realizes.Last but not least
my wife Michele who has stuck with me through some very
difficult times.A lesser person would have been gone by now.
Are daughter andra has given us a lot and then some for a
three year old she has so much energy.Michele has put up
with both of us a great deal and I love her for it.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone
