Happy Thanksgiving to everyone in the 44th Senatorial District!

Thanksgiving not only commemorates the Pilgrims' celebration of the
fruitful crops of 1621, but it is also a day of giving thanks for
everything we are grateful for in our daily lives -- it's a time to stop,
smell the roses and think about what is truly precious to us.
I'm sure you are like me when I say I give thanks for my lovely family and
terrific friends. And we are all thankful for the roofs over our heads and
the bountiful meals we receive everyday.

Please take a few minutes this year at your Thanksgiving feast and remember
the soliders overseas who cannot be at their families' dinner table. Say a
few words of thanks to them for keeping us free and allowing us to maintain
our lifestyles.

My family and I want to wish all of you a wonderful Thanksgiving!
