Started off Thanksgiving with Mass. It only seems right - on a day of giving thanks - to go straight to the giver of all gifts. The One who owes us nothing, but without whom we wouldn't even exist. The homily was about giving thanks for unmerited gifts; gifts we do not deserve - not the least of which is Jesus, Himself. Others that I would add: family, friends, friendship, faith, forgiveness. Those who lead and instruct us in faith, those who pray for us, those who inspire us. Those whom we can serve. The blessing of being born and living in a country where freedom is all but taken for granted. Employment. Health. Life. Sacraments. Guardian angels. All way more than we deserve. Happy Thanksgiving!
