As we prepare for the Thanksgiving holiday, I find that there is much for which to be grateful.  We live in an amazing country.  Yes, there are challenges, but America is still a blessed land of freedom.  For those military servicemen and women, who are serving far away from home and family to give us the freedom to enjoy time with ours, let us give thanks for each of them and all their families.  I am also thankful for my family, friends, good health and the wonderful opportunity I have been given to serve the great state of Arkansas.  Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.
