This coming Thursday we celebrate Thanksgiving.  Throughout my youth, this was my favorite holiday.  It was a favorite for two good reasons:  first was the great abundance of wonderful food and the second was that all the family members would be gathered together.  Thanksgiving still comes with good food, even if it is at a restaurant, but there are very few family members to celebrate with anymore.  It is a sad reality that I now have more deceased than living family members.
However, I still enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday and a delicious meal.  And being with family and friends is always wonderful.  Certainly memories of past Thanksgiving holidays and the people who were a part of them are always on my mind.  They bring both a smile to my face and a tear to my eye.  Even if I spent Thanksgiving alone, I would have much to be thankful for.  I have been blessed by God in so many ways.  Just a few blessings are: family, friends, fairly good health, the priesthood, being the pastor of St. Ann, living in Bethany Beach, a Southern Comfort Manhattan, a good book, a Broadway musical, the beach.  Of course there are many more blessings, both large and small, and Thanksgiving is a day to remember our many blessings and to say “Thank You” to God for them.  This Thursday, enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday.  Enjoy whomever you are with.  Enjoy the food, the drink and whatever else is a part of the day.  Enjoy it all!  But be sure to take a moment to give thanks to God for all the He has given to you.

Have a great Bethany Beach week!
