Count your blessings.... that's right. I said it.

Folks, we live in the Land of Plenty if ever there were one. An economic downturn is nothing compared to the riches and wealth we enjoy. I hope you can find very, very much to be thankful for this Christmas season. As Hanukkah begins, remember those before us who have struggled for freedom and the One true God. Remember His ever abiding love for us.

Then, have a holly-jolly laugh at the email below, that I intercepted from two of my friends. They are discussing the Christmas Holiday menu at Grandma's house this year. Tell THEM that these are hard times!!!! Ha!

Merry Christmas to All!!!
