Thanksgiving Day dawns like any other day in my tiny corner of paradise. Still, it is a day to stop and consider whether it was just blind damned luck or God’s ample bounty that has made me so smugly comfortable in this Autumn of life …
Actually, I do like having someone to be grateful towards. Science is just too fickle. With science, I know that being struck with a meteor is statistically unlikely in my short lifespan, but my odds of being killed by a conscience deficient miscreant is uncomfortably high.
I think I will go with a kind and loving god to be grateful to, rather than some mindless cosmic cypher. The odds are better.
In any case, may this day of thanksgiving be a good one for you and your family!
