Friday Fire: In All Things Give Thanks. What Are You Thankful For?

Sly and the Fam gettin it

It was my intention to post this yesterday but things got busy…

Yesterday was a day set aside to give thanks for who and what we have in our lives. Whether you celebrate Thanksgiving or chose not to isn’t what it’s about. I see this as a time to reflect and count our blessings

It’s tradition in my family that we go around the table and each person tells what they are thankful for. Today you’re at the table of TSF; I’ll kick things off.

I’m thankful for the life, health and strength of my family and friends, thankful for the opportunity to raise a son and experience the unconditional love he has for me. I’m thankful for the peaks that have held me up and the valleys that humble me.

In closing I’m thankful for Mike Tillery, TSF and the opportunity to share a small piece of my world with an astute audience that appreciates the cause we’re fighting for.

God Bless,

Ron Glover (The Brother Report)
