A special Happy Birthday to Dr. Dreibrodt, our co-founder and Chairman of the Board.  He will turn 80 tomorrow (October 12) and is really having a great life.  For those who know him and want to wish him a birthday greeting, please write me for his mailing address.

Below is a passage sent to me by my Iowa friends (Kathy Enyart and Jackie Morse).  It is a sobering note to recognize small things for which we should be thankful. Hope you enjoy it.

(Thanksgiving Note) Things aren't so bad...

A little reminder about how good we have it.

The following is something to ponder..............

If you woke up this morning with more health than illness...you are more blessed than the million who will not survive this week.

If you have never experienced the danger of battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation ... you are ahead of 500 million people in the world.

If you can attend a church meeting without fear of harassment, arrest, torture, or death...you are more blessed than three billion people in the world.

If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep...you are richer than 75% of this world.

If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish someplace...you are among the top 8%  of the world’s wealthy.

If your parents are still alive and still married...you are very rare, even in the United States and Canada.

If you hold up your head with a smile on your face and are truly thankful...you are blessed because the majority can, but most do not.

If you can hold someone’s hand, hug them or even touch them on the shoulder...you are blessed because you can offer healing touch.

If you can read this message, you just received a double blessing in that someone was thinking of you, and furthermore, you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world that cannot read at all.

Have a good day, count your blessings, and pass this along to remind everyone else how blessed we all are.
