Betty Kent suggested that I write something about Thanksgiving because we seem to forget the holiday and all our blessings.
“We’ve got a lot to be thankful for in Columbia County,” she said. “We’ve got a good place to live, and we’ve been spared from all these bad storms.”
To me, that’s one of the best things about Thanksgiving: It reminds us to take stock of what’s good in our lives. It does seem a little sad, though, that we are quick to complain about virtually everything, yet it takes a holiday to force us to express the slightest amount of gratitude.
