I'm thankful for the fact that truth tellers may be silenced...but the truth can't.
I'm thankful for the many readers of this blog and others who are informed and not silent. keep talking truth to power.
I'm thankful for health.
I'm thankful for a roof over my head.
I'm thankful that I'm not hungry.
I'm thankful that I'm not alone.
I'm thankful I have good work.
Here's hoping that someday America will realize that those things that I'm thankful for aren't "privileges"; but basic human rights.

I am deeply thankful for the love of those who are supporting me in my own return to health and hope. For the love that is ever present in every ONE OF US, whether we recognize it or not. For the courage and spirit and lovingkindness of those, like YOU, Brad, who choose to tell the stories that are needed for us all to awaken to our purpose. May this day be filled with blessings, new awakenings, remembrances, returns, and a restoration of the Light of Love in our human hearts for every living creature on our beloved, beautiful planet-Mother Earth, Gaia. No exceptions-even if we disagree! We are all born & we'll all die on this gorgeous tub TOGETHER (at least for the foreseeable future). Might as well figure out a way to swim in the same direction... I wonder how we can bridge the gap in our understanding of one another. (I think it may to do with having either a life wish or a death wish, based on our acculturation.) May a love of life imbue us all with joy, celebration, harmony and peace. Thank you all, Bradblogians, for your contribution to the enhancement of our species' survival-we are such an amazing creation, if we could but learn to live together without pulling the whole structure down around our ears! Blessings. Sophia, at peace today in her heart.

Here is a lovely prayer that was shared with me today-couldn't be more appropriate. TOGETHER was can cast off the chains of oppression-ONLY together is it possible-in prayer, in action, and intent.
Oh, Goddess and God.
We thank Thee for food and remember the hungry.
We thank Thee for health and remember the sick.
We thank Thee for freedom and remember the enslaved.
May these remembrances stir us to service,
that Thy gifts to us may be used for others.
So Mote It Be.
Blessed Be &
Thanks to Mother/Father God/dess,
ALL THAT IS.

One Brad beats 100 GWB's
One Sibel beats 100 Cheney's
One person looking to find the truth beats 100 liars
One dollar in my pocket beats 100 dollars of credit.
One sincere "thanks" beat 100 platitudes.
Thanks to you all.

I'm thankful for my beautiful, healthy newborn baby (2 weeks old today) and my wonderful and loving wife. This year we've been blessed with being able to move out from the rented apartment into a new house. We have many things to be thankful for, but most importantly, we are thankful for our family, health and love.
Thank you and God Bless!

I'm thankful to have lived to the ripe old age of 64, without too much PTSD. But there are too many things to list here, things like freedom for Governor Siegelman, that would make ever so much more grateful, were PreznitII Abomina simply to live up to the myriad promises that he sauckered us into supporting him with. The new sheriff strode into town, declared a new era (or did he say error?), and hired the old sheriff as his spokeshole. WTF?
Other than that, I'm grateful that I live in a former commie country, and that each month I plunk down my 60 or 70 bucks (used to be 30 bucks, before Smirky/Sneery looted the treasury) for full health, dental, and eye care at a state-of-the-art facility, and that the oterh taxes I pay just go to nickle-and-dime corruption, not vast ethnic cleansing campaigns for natural resources.
Most of all, I'm grateful for my friends - each and every one of you is beyond price, in my world. Love and Peace to All

The freedom to speak my piece.
Ya know, I'm doing my holidays slow an I'm stuck on the bush cheney's WAR'S deadly result.

It feels like Hallowed Tweened. I proscribe soul redemption for those Humanity Fuckers. The heavy lift. Its not letting them off...but making them REALIZE...THE WORLD REJECTS..WE TOLERATE that NO MORE OBAMA.

I am thankful that we were able to leave Germany and the company that wanted to use and abuse my husband despite his two BS and MBA degrees and 11 yrs of service.
I'm thankful that another company saw his potential and hired him so that we could live in the states for the first time as a married couple.
I am hopeful that despite paying $2k and waiting over 8 months for my hubby's green card, that we can help immigration reform so that no one else has to repeat the 'putting your life on hold' waiting period while some invisible official determines our fate.
I am thankful for Brad's Blog so that I can have truth against my repubicon family members that continue to be brain washed by Faux Spews.
I am thankful that we both have health insurance now and fears of major illnesses do not haunt us anymore.
I am thankful for my friends that did not abandon me while I lived overseas unemployed.
I have hope that one of these days, I can restart my career so that we can repay our debt from living in expensive Germany.
I am thankful that I have become aware and are no longer trapped in this religious hypocrisy and have become an atheist.
