I was going to write something tonight as I sat down after my family left and tell you how really grateful I felt. My son was recently hit by a car and suffered some really scary side effects of a concussion. He went blind for a few hours a week after the accident and after seeming to feel fine this was a shock of epic proportions.

I don’t really want to make public the other things that are going on as that would violate any trust they have in me, but I will say that no matter how bad or difficult, its all good in the end.
I got up this morning and I was alive and loved. My kids were happy for the holiday and to spend it with family. We played BINGO for lottery cards (our Thanksgiving tradition ever since Uncle Vince and Aunt Joyce came to visit, another blessing) and we walked away with a few bucks, lots of laughs and a great deal of gratitude in our hearts that we had each other today to feel safe and loved.

In the spirit of Thanksgiving I wanted to share with you a powerful perspective on how Thankful we are to live in the country we do, even if the election didn’t go your way. Any who … I thought the excerpt below sent an important message that needed to be shared.
This is a really interesting way to put things in perspective.
If we could shrink the earth’s population to a village of precisely 100 people, with all the existing human ratios remaining the same, it would look something like the following.
There would be:
- 57 Asians
- 21 Europeans
- 14 from the Western hemisphere, both north and south, and
- 8 Africans
- 52 would be female
- 48 would be male
- 70 would be non-white
- 30 would be white
- 70 would be non-Christian
