Greetings, Dear Mission Of Hope Friends;
For all of us here at the Thompson Family; Thanksgiving begins today.
Many of you receiving our Updates over the years, know that this is my favorite Holiday. I cherish special Family memories of my childhood and Thanksgiving’s gone by. The Food, the Fellowship with my Relatives, the Detroit Lions Football Games – many played in those days outdoors and in THE SNOW. If you know us; you know we LOVE THE SNOW.
At this very special time of the year, we stop and give Thanks; for all that we have and have been blessed with, by God’s Grace and Provision. For all we have and for all we hold dear. For Family and Friends and for times shared with them. For special memories filled with both laughter and sometimes sorrow; but all deeply cherished. For the promise of tomorrow and for all it might bring. For the Hope and Faith we have in knowing that God is our Greatest Beacon of Guiding Light for our lives.
May we be forever grateful that God has blessed us in so many ways and with much more than we truly need or deserve. May we also be forever appreciative and respectful of the heritage of our Nation and our Forefathers and the price they paid for our Freedom and Religious Freedom. May you be blessed with a time of fellowship and joy with the ones you hold dear to your heart.
Have a safe and blessed and joyful Thanksgiving week.
Emmette Thompson, Executive Director – Mission Of Hope
