Thankful for much


It is heartwarming to recognize that I have so many things for which I am thankful that I don’t know where to begin. What comes to mind at the end of a beautiful fall day is the color displayed by the canopy of trees on a morning walk, the calmness and feeling of safety as it grows dark outside, the comfort of dear friends close by, a phone call from a son far away, and the text from another on his way home this night. I am thankful for this gracious town I have called home for many years and its caring and thoughtful people. I am thankful for citizenship that affords me the opportunity to speak and act in ways I believe are important. I am thankful that earnest prayers are answered. And that is just the beginning of my list. GWEN FULLEN Arkadelphia
