November . . .

This is one of my favorite months and I love Thanksgiving. It is one of my favorite holidays. I love Christmas as well, but Thanksgiving is such a peaceful time of giving thanks with family and friends. It is a holiday of good character without so much of the commercialism that we have now with Christmas.

We went to the football game yesterday and the MSU Bobcats won! That is a good thing as about a third of the team as H1N1. I read that if you were born before 1950 (also heard befoe 1954) you are less likely to get this virus. Another reason to be thankful, huh?

Then we went to Stan and Rainy's house to have fun "trick or treating" with the kids. Weston enjoyed giving out the candy more than he liked going around the neighborhood. It was a really, really good day.

"I will waste not even a precious second today in anger or hate or jealousy or selfishness. I know that the seeds I sow I will harvest, because every action, good or bad, is always followed by an equal reaction. I will plant only good seeds this day." -- Og Mandino, Author
