Giving of Thanks

Hey All,

We all know times are pretty tough right now. Some of us have had it much worse than others. I consider myself one of the more fortunate ones. I don't say that to rub anything in, but just leading up to saying how I think it may be even more important in bad times to make our list of blessings . . . count 'em and thank God for 'em.

Many have stated in various ways how thankful they are for this website/forum and I count myself in that company as well, though you don't hear from me a lot.

I'm thankful for good family relationships, a good job, discovering the joys of motorcycling...and much more that I won't list here.

What are thankful for today??

Wishing each and every one of you the very, very best during this holiday season. Be safe and be blest.


1989 VN750

I'm bad with names. May I just call you dumb?

Thanks John,

And a Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family too!!!

Its times like this that we really need to realize how blessed we are. My Dad used to say, and I still repeat it, " I once whined because I had no shoes until I met a man who had no feet.........."

May we all give thanks for what we have been given.

A loving and understanding (most of the time ) wife.
A steady job (epically in this economy)
A family who will always have my back no matter what
And last but not least ALL OF YOU on this forum who guide and support everyone here that all have at least one thing in common.

I am thankful for my family.

I am thankful that I found a job to help keep a roof over my family's head and food in our stomachs in these hard times

Most importantly, I am thankful for the men and women of our armed forces that have sacraficed themseleves so that we may still have the freedom to celebrate holidays such as today. I send my thanks to those still fighting for us today that can not be with their families on this Thanksgiving day, and wish them a safe journey home.
