Senior Spotlight for Nov. 21, 2011

Mary Jo Brown

Thanksgiving — what does it mean to you? Going to some relative’s house for a visit and dinner?Or are you the one doing dinner, getting ready for company?

Actually, whatever the preparation is or isn’t, the true meaning I believe is giving thanks to our Lord for all we have, regardless of the situation.

I’ve learned during my journey through this world, it’s the pits a lot of times.

But I still have part of my family, some of my health, people some more in tune with my needs, moods, etc. Some stinkers, but hey, we can’t have it all.

Otherwise there would be no need for the challenge of getting to heaven and being where we truly belong.

Be thankful for who you are, for believe me, it can be worse.

Have a good Thanksgiving if not a happy one.

Happy birthday to Amanda Foote and Mary Jane Lindley.

Get well/speedy recovery to Ernie Garcia, Sharon Clark, Joan Duzik, Bob Harrington, Scotty McMurtrey and Brenda Knob.
