On Thursday, November 24th, many Americans will be celebrating Thanksgiving Day. However, it has become controversial, due to the abuses and discrimination that Native Americans suffered due to the European settlements all over the American continent. Although I am primarily of European descent, I have some Mesoamerican ancestry too. Therefore, I thoroughly relate to the controversy, but honor the holiday as a way of giving thanks for all my blessings. In that regard, I am thankful for my family, my friends, my home, my pets, my job, my gift of creativity, and above all, for living in a country where I have the freedom to praise my God, who is my creator, savior and redeemer.

In closing, I want to leave you with a piece of scripture found in 2 Corinthians 9:11, "You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God. I also want to thank all my followers, as well as everyone who takes the time to leave a comment. May your life be filled with blessings, no matter what your race, ethnicity, culture, gender, personal belief system or any other difference may be!
