Be Thankful!

11/24/2008   Comment on This

Back in the Depression and the days when Americans had way less money, people had to deal with people because this is all they had. Because of financial hardship, many families were extended and had to live with each other, especially when we had World War II apartments and housing was very tough to come by.

Money in many cases separates us, for what ever reason. Jealousy, competition, keeping up with the Joneses. Back in the day, we all knew our neighbors. How many of us can say that today? Most of us hardly have anything to do with our neighborhood because we pull into our fancy garage and close the door. I'm not saying that having a few bucks isn't a good thing or that there is such a thing as poor and happy.

All I am saying is that in these tough economical times, itís time to rely on people, not the mighty dollar. Itís time to learn not to define one's self on the net worth that thy possess. Many folks, especially men, do this. Hopefully we learn that our families and friends are the most important things in life. Things will get better--they always do.

The pendulum has swung a little more than usual, but things will come back. We live in the greatest country in the world. This week count your blessings, give your spouse a little more love. Tell your kids how much you love them. Find out who lives next door to you. I hope all of our listeners out there have the greatest Thanksgiving. God bless this great country and all of you.

Feel free to say hello to me--I love hearing from listeners!
