As we celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday, I want to put the political debates of today aside and take time to reflect on the many blessings that we all-too-often take for granted. As I sat down to write this column, four very distinct blessings came to my mind.
The first blessing we all have is life. I was reminded of that earlier this year when my granddaughter Ann-Roberts Byrne was born. She was, like all of us at that point in our lives, small, weak and helpless. But life radiated from her, shooting out like little rays. It reminded me of a line from a poem by the British poet, William Wordsworth: “Heaven lies about us in our infancy!”
