As we head into the holiday season, I encourage all Wyomingites to think about more than shopping and hectic schedules.
Thanksgiving! For me, and many of you, it means family, pie, crunchy leaves (maybe snow by then), turkey, pie, friends and did I say pie? But let’s take time out to REALLY think about Thanksgiving. Thanks - Giving. Who might you give thanks to this year?
Shall we thank God for our health and another year lived with family and friends?
Shall we be thankful for those friends who have not lived through another year; thankful for their ongoing influence on our lives?
Are you thankful for America? Whether the Presidential election went your way or not, let’s be thankful for this great country in which we are privileged to live.
And within that great country, can you think of a better state in which to live? If, because it has been chilly lately, you were tempted to say “yes” to that question, think back to the last few beautiful Wyoming sunsets, the fresh air and the beautiful scenery and wildlife. Oh yes and Wyoming’s wonderful people, who still extend a hand to help a neighbor.
As we begin these next few months full of holidays and activities, I invite you to look beyond the hectic and give Thanks.
Wyoming Secretary of State
