It would not be Thanksgiving without being thankful. So, the day before running over people with shopping carts to get the “must-have” items of Black Friday, let us not forget to be thankful for the things we already have.
In short, I am thankful for God, family, and country. I have a feeling many other people would say the same thing.
I am thankful for the people who have to work on Thanksgiving so they can protect and serve. Police stations, fire departments, military bases, and prisons do not take a holiday, but it is not just the public servants.
The daily newspaper you pick up or have delivered to your door Friday morning did not magically produce itself. It came as a result of newspaper employees working on Thanksgiving day.  
The last-minute Thanksgiving meal items can be picked up at grocery or convenience stores where employees are there instead of being with their families.
Another group I am thankful who works on Thanksgiving is the NFL. I love Thanksgiving Day football. Nothing quite like some pigskin action on television after having some turkey action at the dinner table.
From my family and our newspaper family, have a Happy Thanksgiving.
