Magician Gives Thanks

It's November. Soon we'll be celebrating Thanksgiving and everything that entails. As a culture, we seem to celebrate in different ways in recent years. In my neck of the woods -- there are lots of deer hunters taking off for  . . . well, their neck of the woods to bag that trophy buck. And more recently, it seems that stores are attempting to cut into the holiday to boost their bottom line. Not content with the day after, they've decided that American's want to come out on Thanksgiving day to wait in line and get the big deals of the year.

My family still celebrates in a more traditional way. We gather together, cook a big meal-- yeah, watch a little football -- but take some time to actually give thanks for what we have. And if we live in America, we still have a lot to be thankful for. I'm thankful that we can gather together and freely give thanks to God. I'm thankful that all our needs are met -- and this year we're all healthy. I'm thankful that I can make a living for my family doing something that I absolutely love! That is truly "magical" to me.
