Friends,

Lorna and I send our prayers and wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving. Whether with family, friends or loved ones, I hope you enjoy the memories and moments that make this holiday truly special.

My two children are flying in to visit and I look forward to spending time with them. Keith Jr. and Amber are two of my greatest accomplishments and two of the many blessings in my life.

Lorna and I will be visiting with her family as we create new Thanksgiving traditions as husband and wife. Another blessing.

Thanksgiving always brings out the best in us. It keeps me grounded on what’s important in life.

As I watch the devastation with the wildfires in California or wreckage from Hurricane Michael across the state or the difficulties that many in our community here at home go through on a daily basis, it reminds me of the little things in life — a family that cares, good friends, food on the table, clothes on your back and a roof over your head – that make today a blessing.

We all go through struggles; challenges that confront us and require us to make tough choices. I know from experience and from working with others that life throws curveballs. How we meet those challenges, learn from them and grow is what’s important.

Today I am grateful for the challenges I have overcome and I am counting the blessings I have received.

Wishing you a blessed, joyous and Happy Thanksgiving.

 

Yours in service,

Keith James
