I do not think of all the misery, but of the glory that remains. Go outside into the fields, nature and the sun, go out and seek happiness in yourself and in God. Think of the beauty that again and again discharges itself within and without you and be happy. – Anne Frank
These are encouraging words from a young girl who knew adversity. It can be a challenge to remain hopeful, to express gratitude, when all seems lost. But a grateful spirit will sustain us through even the darkest of times and bring us to a new and brighter day.
The pilgrims made seven times more graves than huts… nevertheless, set aside a day of thanksgiving. – H. W. Westermayer
This year we celebrate Thanksgiving as our friends and neighbors find themselves in a period of loss and stress. Our hearts go out to each and every one of them. We wonder at the strength required to face each day and the fortitude required to face what’s before them. They are, in a way, like the Pilgrims, struggling to begin again. May the many people affected by the Camp fire see new and better tomorrows.
Let us all be thankful for the spirit of generosity around us and the many blessings yet to be received. I give thanks that the strength and fortitude of those who came before us gave birth to this wonderful free nation, the United States of America.
Happy Thanksgiving to all! We at Post Scripts are thankful for your participation here and for the generosity, strength, and fortitude that shapes your daily lives.
