Happy Thanksgiving all my blogging friends.

Find the good in the day and tell those you love that you do love them.  As we enjoy time with our families there are those that don't have family or are separated because they can't afford to travel or because they are off fighting for our country so we can enjoy this day.  Or sadly, as happened just yesterday in a city not far from here, a Sheriff's Deputy was shot and killed with his own gun while protecting the public.  I worked with law enforcement for several years and any time a fellow officer is killed in the line of duty it affects officers not only in that department but ALL law enforcement officers, dispatchers, fire fighters, EMS.. any one who works in that line of work knows that by doing so it could well be their last day, because of the people that are out protecting are also the ones that can turn on you in a split second and make that shift your last one!!  May Deputy Brownlee RIP, and his family know that he died a HERO and find some peace in that.  He leaves behind a wife and four children. Prayers are going out to them at this difficult time!!
Give Thanks for those that you love and those that gave all so you can tell the ones you love how you feel about them!! 
Happy Thanksgiving!!

Very sad news. My heart goes out to his family. My nephew is graduating the NYPD academy in December and I have so much respect for him. Please say a prayer he is always kept safe on his new journey as a NYC Police Officer. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.
