Happy Thanksgiving

I would like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.

I am thankful for all of you who stuck with Eskimo through my 2-1/2 year imprisonment.  I am thankful for my wife and sons that have helped me through that period.

I am thankful for an excellent caring therapist I had in prison, the education I received while there, and the volunteers that came in and worked with us and helped me improve my life.

I am thankful for the people I’ve had help me make a better life for myself now.  I am thankful I had a home, at least part of a family, and all of you to return to.

I am thankful to the folks from Shoreline Covenant Church who have helped me adjust and recover.

I am thankful for my sister and how she took care of things after my mothers death and was kind to me.

I am thankful that my father is still with us.

I am thankful for God making his presence known while I was in solitary in a way that I absolutely couldn’t ignore or explain away.  I am thankful for him giving me life, love, and hope.

I am trying to live a life directed by love but I have to admit, sometimes I still let fear get the best of me, but nothing like before, and I am thankful for that.

I miss my mother but I am glad she is with God and no longer suffering and am thankful for that.
