The economy is in a crisis, your retirement account is in the dumpster and you are having trouble financing that new RV. "Woe is me", you are saying. Well this month we celebrate Thanksgiving and I think you will find something in your life to be thankful for after I relate this story.
In our RVing adventures across the country my wife and I like to explore ghost towns and mining camps. Many times the only visible remains are truly those of the ghosts. Such is the case in Silver City, Utah. Any signs of habitation are long gone, but many of the inhabitants still reside in the cemetery. As I walked among the headstones, I came across the following:
After reaching the fourth headstone, I couldn't help but offer up a prayer of thanksgiving for living in the era and country that I do. I have: two healthy children employed in the profession of their choosing, a home, a caring wife and I am able to travel freely about in a RV. So next time you mutter," Woe is me", remember these children and their heart broken mother. Then give thanks for all of God's blessings in your life.
