Thankful and Thoughtful Thursday
We are thankful we have a warm house and cozy spots to sleep. When Mom read about Governor Christie blasting the House of Representatives for not voting on a bill to provide funds for Sandy victims and rebuilding, she was reminded of how many peoples' homes were destroyed or damaged.
Also on our minds: so many who we know who have recently been diagnosed and/or treated with various forms of cancer. It just seems like such an upsurge, and our hearts go out to them and their families. We hope and purr that the new year will bring more progress in treatments and research towards cures. In that respect it is important that Congress not vote for cutting spending on biological research through the NIH and NSF because it is only through supporting basic research that the gains can be made in finding cures. So if you have it in mind to write to your Congressmen/women, you could include that thought if you wish. (our Mom helped us say that).
Next post we promise not to get political.
