I thought that perhaps you in a funk.


"Hang in and try to have a happy and plentiful Thanksgiving".

I don't need to "hang in and TRY <emphasis provided>" to have a happy and plentiful Thanksgiving. I WILL be having an absolutely wonderful Thanksgiving and, as always, will give thanks for all that I have.

All things in life are subject to change. You mainly choose what is important and what changes in your life.

While I agree that all things in life are subject to change, I totally disagree with the notion that "you mainly choose...what changes in your life". That's just not true. There are many changes (in things both unimportant and things REALLY important) that we have absolutely NO control over.

And I think you might have missed my other posts where I say that as a traditionalist, I will be celebrating T'giving for as long as I live.
