One of the things I love, as you know, is the web. Love my blog, love everything social media-related, love, LOVE my email. Today I got a Thanksgiving message from the President. OK…I know it really wasn’t directly from him, to me…but still. The email said, Dear Janet. And it was signed by the POTUS. Good enough for me! I’ve never gotten ANY email from ANY president on Thanksgiving before, so I’m really quite thrilled. Even though HE didn’t press send. I don’t care. Likely Obama will be alive when I turn 100 and even though he won’t be president at the time, something tells me I’ll get my 100th birthday wish in email form from him anyway.
Next week, I head to the LA Auto Show to see the new, the great, the renewable energy options and the refinements that the American car industry is bringing to the table. And I can’t wait. So, yes…I’m a bit hopped up — enthusiasm back, feeling that all will ultimately end up right in the world.
Here is my message to you. It is Thanksgiving. So give thanks for what you have and for one day, ignore what you have not. If you know someone who doesn’t have a place at a table, why don’t you see if you can make some room for them at yours?
