Now that the never-ending campaign for president is over and this being the season of harvest and thanksgiving, my thoughts turn to what I am thankful for. Here are a few of them:
I'm thankful for the health of my family and I. In the past 12 months both my son and I have spent time in the hospital for different illnesses. I'm just thankful for the wonderful doctors and our great insurance that covered the thousands of dollars in expenses.
I'm thankful for the absolutely beautiful weather we have enjoyed this fall. I can't remember a more perfect fall as far as color and weather.
Every time I get something out of the fridge or cupboard I am thankful for farmers. The American farmer receives too little recognition (and money) for what they do for this great nation. There's an old saying that goes, "You can't insult a farmer when your mouth is full of food."
I'm thankful for this great job of providing this gift basket service that also does two other important things. By sending these Michigan gift baskets you help promote Michigan and we donate 1% of each sale to the Food Bank Council of Michigan.
I'm thankful for coffee. Without which, I would have a difficult time starting my day and getting anything done. I have a shirt that says, "Coffee is my favorite meal of the day." It's true.
That's just a few of mine. Feel free to share what you are thankful for in the comments.
