Thanksgiving - In Spite of Everything

"Who are we? What really matters?

It's the man or woman in your life that you love most. It's the child or grandchild who trusts you and depends on you to love them more than you love yourself. It's the beauty of the world we've been given and the chance to love it more than the stuff we mine from it, cut down and make from it, dig up or drill for. It's the feeling we get when we do something altruistic and realize that even a small selfless act gives us more satisfaction than our striving for our 'important' careers."
