Happy Thanksgiving

Wednesday, November 21, 2007


What a holiday. Not only is it about the parades, family, friends, eating, and football. Its the days set aside to give thanks. I know, I know, you've heard this over and over each year that's important in the middle of the hectic day to remember its purpose. However, I am here to remind you again.

On this special annual occurrence, I hope that you will find just a moment, on a very personal level to acknowledge what you are personally thankful for. No matter how petty or how important those things are, remember them on this day. In the hectic lives that we live, that seem just to get even more hectic each day, it is so important to grab hold of the holidays set aside.

There is so much to be thankful for... Family, friends, the country we live in, the troops that support of freedoms, the things around us that we don't think about everyday such as shelter, food, a job, and so much more. From the less fortunate to the most successful, we all have things to be thankful for.

Of course, my love of country music is apart of my list of things I'm thankful for. It is something that each and everyday brings me so much joy. Whether its listening to the most classic or the newest unreleased music, it is such a great feeling to be able, in some small way, share my deep love for the music with you, the readers. It may seem petty, but, if you take a moment and think about it from your prospective in life, it may not. Just think, how much joy in the past year you have gotten from music.

I wish each and every reader a very Happy Thanksgiving, and in your private thoughts and your time with family and friends to be sure to take the time to be thankful.

Happy Thanksgiving,
