  • Let us give much thanks

     It is that time each year that we take a few moments to give thanks.

    Sometimes, we don’t have everything that we want. Others may not even have everything that we need.

    While the millions of dollars spent on elections could be put to better uses, that is not reality.

    Instead, we help others when we can without the need for any praise or publicity.

    We help ourselves as much as possible.
