I hope you all have a quick chance to read this before the hectic day begins. My family does not celebrate Thanksgiving, but we try to be grateful every day for all our blessings. Therefore, I understand the \"spirit\" of the holiday and wish to extend this reminder to you all... All of us have had such horrible traumas to deal with recently, and some of us deal with old traumas that affect us daily as though they were recent. Its so easy to wrap those traumas around us like a blanket of thorns and allow ourselves to be tortured by them constantly. For all our sakes, take some time tomorrow to unwrap yourself, even if only for a moment if that\'s all you can bear, and release all those traumas. Use that time to reflect on the blessings you have, because in some form, we all have them. Do you have a good marriage, a stable financial situation, healthy children, your own measure of reasonable health, a nice home/apartment to live in, the love of family/friends, a job you enjoy, a new pair of shoes (my favorite), are you good at something, have you ever made someone\'s day, changed someone\'s life, touched someone\'s heart? If you are unsure, ask. But for the record, everyone I have communicated with has touched me deeply already, so the answer is YES! And if you are still having a hard time unwrapping yourself today, make it a point of doing something nice for someone and you will feel it (you know, that feeling). If all else fails, buy yourself a new pair of shoes! That\'s what I do. Take care all, and I\'ll be checking the discussions frequently today.

BUT.... I feel like my visits are not what they use to be. He...
