I am grateful (and continually surprised) by any and all who care to read what I have to say.

I am grateful I am not running for president (and I bet you all are too.)

I am grateful for a good family, a wife who amazingly loves me, and kids who are better than both of us (even if they get most of that from their mom). And, of course, the grandkids including the one on his way and hopefully many more to come.

I am grateful for my parents and ancestors who got me where I am today with so many wonderful blessings in this modern world.

I am grateful for my in-laws (one of the greatest blessings of life is to have a mother-in-law who actually likes you) and all my wife's ancestors who got her where she is today.

I am grateful to live in this land of opportunity which I believe to be the greatest on the earth mainly because the potential of us all - all of us - and I welcome more to come by birth and through borders (preferably legally but treated humanely however arriving) - as we move towards that more perfect union inspired by our founders who were inspired by God. God bless America and all the nations and peoples of the earth!

I am grateful for the Gospel of Jesus Christ and membership in His Church that practices continuing revelation with a living prophet moving us forward toward God not backward to the mistakes of human history. And I am most grateful for belief and practices that bind families together across generations and the healing of sin and hurt for the eternities through the Lord Jesus Christ.

Amen and amen!
