Happy Thanksgiving

President Lincoln recognized the need for a day of thanks at a time when Americans felt little to be thankful about. I don't have to strain my soul to find gratitude in and for my life. Here's a piece of wisdom -- often attributed to me but belonging to Allen K. Chalmers -- I keep in mind at all times. "The grand essentials of happiness are: something to do, something to love, and something to hope for." In case I ever forget, it also gives me the top three things to be thankful for. Wishing you all a heartfelt and happy Thanksgiving.

Can I add "chocolate to eat" to that list?
