Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

As you look around the table today, ready to enjoy the meal, take a second to remember those families with empty chairs around their table. Those families who have loved ones deployed in the middle east will look toward that chair in hope and longing for the day when it will be filled again. For those who look toward that chair and know it will never be filled again, the grief can only be assuaged by the love of those around them.

I think of CHP Officer Stevens widow today. I can only imagine the love and support her extended family must be giving her. It will be a difficult day in many homes across our land. Loss takes many forms, illness, accident and tragedy are all part of our life.

Today, take a second to look into the faces of those around you, enjoy them, even if they are a pain in the butt.

Today I give thanks to God for all the blessings in my life.
Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends in the Western Alliance, and all our readers.
