Will see you again on Friday! I hope Thanksgiving opens our hearts with gladness and gratitude for the gift of life we have been given, and my prayers will be for all of us — the rich, poor, busy, marginalized, lonely, over-worked, sick, worried; it is true that we are all in the midst of a great battle, not always apparent to others. God bless us all.
