This is the true spirit of Thanksgiving for me, Karen, and John:

I asked God for strength, that I might achieve.
I was made weak, that I might learn humbly to obey......
I asked for health, that I might do greater things.
I was given infirmity, that I might do better things.....
I asked for riches, that I might be happy.
I was given poverty that I might be wise......
I asked for power, that I might have the praise of men.
I was given weakness, that I might feel the need of God.....
I asked for all things, that I might enjoy life.
I was given life, that I might enjoy all things......
I got nothing that I asked for-
but everything I had hoped for.
Almost despite myself, my unspoken prayers were answered-
I am among all, most richly blessed!

And we are truly thankful for our rich blessings.
