What are you thankful for? // Thanksgiving 2015Thanksgiving became a National Holiday under President Abraham Lincoln. While watching some football games this weekend an ad from Verizon Wireless came on. Of course, they were pushing one of their many products, however they were using the hashtag #Thanksgetting! Making people think about what they can get this year. We both rolled our eyes. Thanksgetting really? It's amazing how much Thanksgiving has really changed over the years.
The internet, marketers and so many others have become the downfall of the holiday season. This began our conversation about what we are thankful for.
We are also thankful and blessed to have a child on the way. And lets not forget our dogs. While we are grateful for a home, cars and other material items, we're not thankful for these things. These items can be replaced or taken away. While you are out and about or with family remember the true meaning of Thanksgiving!
What are you Thankful for?

Jerry Costello Jr, Chairman of the House Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee introduced HB 4337. This bill allows blaze pink to be used along with blaze orange.
