Yes Today is our annual office Thanksgiving Lunch.

So Today, I thought I would write a blog about giving thanks. (If it's Turkey cooking instructions you wanted please read my prior post).

This year more than ever if you: number one have a JOB,  Or at least a closing this month you have a lot to be Thankful for.

It seems the last few days more than usual ive heard of this business closing or that person being out of work.

Last Tuesday I was at a Large Commercial Event here in downtown Orlando.  After the event while walking to our car a couple were standing next to the building with a sign Please Help. 

 As I looked at the lady her eyes so red from crying the pain just hit me! They had old torn clothing on and looked like they hadn't eaten in a few days.

As I watched the hundreds of professional business people file past these 2 clearly needy people I was astonished that no one gave anything to them. at least while I was watching.

Well you might as well guess, I did the right thing. But my point here is not about me.

My request is that when you see someone over the holidays please don't judge, JUST GIVE!.

And Always be THANKFUL for all that you have every day of your life!

 Being Thankful can be more than words. it can be Helping someone less fortunate.

In closing I leave you with 4 words.

Nice post Dan. All of us should count our many blessings and give , even if just a little, to the less fortunate. They are our brothers and sisters and a little to us could be a mountain to them. I hope everyone reads and follows suit.

Last night I was sitting in my car outside a restaurant waiting for some friend to arrive. As I sat there with my window down, a woman approached me, asking "Sir, could you help...." I gave my automatic response to such, which I wished afterward I hadn't. I drove around trying to find her, but was unable to. It's still on my mind......

This event is playing itself all over the nation. With unemployment as high as it is it can happen to most anyone. Great job helping! Have a wonderful meal today!
