Happy Thanksgiving

By Remy Benoit

When you sit down to the table with your loved ones today, give thanks. All may not seem perfect, and probably never will be "perfect" but you are here;
you are here with a chance to make difference;
to do what only you can do.

Say a prayer of gratitude for knowing sunrises that bring incredible opportunities to work for a better world for all of us.

The only way, as Gandhi pointed out, to have the world you want, is to be that way yourself.

To those of you wearing the uniform and far from home today, our prayers are with you for you safe return and with your families who are so missing you. Thank you for what you endure for us.

Blessings and peace to all,
Miz' Remy
