Things to be thankful for

Dear Editor,

In a local restaurant this week I saw an elderly lady reading the newspaper and put it down seemingly in disgust. I thought, how true it is that every time you pick up a newspaper all you read about it negativism such as murder, hatred, AIDS, abuse, abortion, wars, storms, burnings and the list goes on and on. How nice it would be to pick up the morning paper and read something good for a change. But, believe it or not, not everything is bad. There are still many things to be thankful for. Here are a few things that I can think of:

The privilege to worship God, at home and at church;

The air we breathe;

A house to live in;

A baby’s smile (yes, some are still allowed to be born);
