Jim: Backacha. You are a fine, fine man. I am grateful to know that in this world of discord and strife, there are still men like you to show us the way. Thanks. Rick

Here here Jim, you’re a very well respected member here with very sage advice. I’m thankful for people like you who look for the good first and are so ready to share to valuable knowledge and skills that can really only be gained by experience. Bravo and high five for 51 years, the love of my life & i just celebrated 25 years and are also blessed with an awesome family that we built together with the priority of sacrificing for the purpose of raising them right the way our folks did.

I’m also a little thankful that I don’t have to go to my MIL’s for the holiday, but that’s for a different thread!

God bless you and your family. It’s wonderful to hear from people like you in a world full of hatred and negative thoughts. You give meaning to Thanksgiving. Like you, I am blessed with a wonderful family. Fortunately, they all live very close to me and my wife and I see them most every day. I thank God that they are all drug free and working members of society. We brought them up with ethical values and they in turn have done the same with their children. I don’t have much money, but I have something more valuable, and that is my family. Priceless.
