Norman Rockwell's Freedom from Want is the iconic Thanksgiving image. The budget has been tight since I lost my job but I am grateful that we are free from true want. The bills are paid and there is ample food available. My children and husband and I are healthy. There was a time in the not too distant past when that was not the case so I am mindful of how important that is. As we celebrate this day of Thanksgiving I will challenge you, as you count your blessings and give thanks, to consider those who do live in want and what actions you can take to help alleviate such want so that next year more people can be free from want.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
