The good in life

We had hoped, as no doubt all Kershaw County residents had, that the economy during this Thanksgiving season would be more vigorous than it actually is -- that fewer people would be unemployed, that the housing market would have rebounded, that small businesses would be prospering more than they are and that the stress caused by economic turmoil would have eased. But even under present circumstances, we have much to be thankful for.

Despite its faults, we all live in the greatest country in the history of the world. Our armed forces, though stressed from combat around the world, are still strong and intensely dedicated. Though voters are not satisfied with what’s happening, our political system is stable and well able to avoid the turmoil of one party’s landslide in 2008, another party’s rout in 2010 and a wide-open election which will take place in two more years.

Here in Kershaw County, we continue to see reasonable growth; good people see the benefits of living in a relatively rural, peaceful area and are drawn to that. And during this Thanksgiving season, let us not forget the “thanks” part of it. More and more studies are showing that people who are grateful for their blessings -- whether those blessings are large or small -- are healthier, happier and more content with life. As we pass Thanksgiving and head toward Christmas, let us all remember to give thanks for all that is good in life.
