Count your blessings

This coming Thursday, we turn our attention — away from the food and the football? — to thoughts of gratitude and thanksgiving.

We should do so personally. It is always good to count our blessings. But we can do so collectively, as a community of neighbors and members of this great nation.

Here are some possibilities for which you may want to consider offering thanks, locally:

The Redcoat volunteers at ACMH Hospital: These kind servants of those who appear at the hospital — ill or for medical tests — provide a bit of peace for those in what can be an otherwise anxious time.

The Armstrong School Board: It may well be that in just a few more months we will completely forget — if we haven't already — the rankling resentment that once held center stage at directors meetings. Debate is fine; what went on before was not debate.

The board of the YMCA in Kittanning: The new Richard G. Snyder YMCA Campus at 1150 N. Water St. is a gem in this county seat. It is amazing what can be done by dedicated volunteers and donors.

Armstrong County Area Agency on Aging: As one ages, consistency can be much desired. The agency provides some of that in the way of assistance, fellowship and meals and the annual picnic and summer senior games. It's much appreciated, we are sure.

These suggestions are just to get you thinking this holiday. It is important to look about us in this way.
