Thanksgiving is tomorrow and we already had things to be grateful for even though right now things are extremely bad for us. Our situation is rather depressing especially for my wife. She however believes that perception and balance are everything. She believes that you get back what you put out and that when you do it genuinely you will have the same returned not when you want it but when you need it most. We are in a financial hole which we are having a hard time climbing out of. Now normally when you find yourself in financial trouble you don't really think to help others when you are struggling to help yourself. Not my wife I swear its like that is the time she is more likely to try to help. Well even though I was less inclined to extend the helping offer I was on board because that is how relationships work you stick together not just when things are good,easy and fun. During the hard times is when loyalty comes in. Today we had someone come to see us who we are very close to. We were not expecting anything except a visit. They arrived and they came with a large Turkey and a $100 Visa gift card which can be used just about anywhere. We now have way more to be grateful for. Do you have any blessings to be grateful for?

ya know, I look at life the same way. There is a balance in things. There might be things that are going bad, but there's always something to be grateful for. I am so glad for your blessing...

We all have them. I have plenty. As long as we have food to eat, a roof over our heads, clothers on our back and friends and family we are truly blessed!

we are too because without them and their help we would find ourselves worse off than we are already.

How wonderful for you and your wife. God has a way of providing when you need it most and what a blessing your friend is to help you out this way. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your wife.
