Does money really have anything to do with Thanksgiving—except what things cost for us to celebrate the holiday?

Aside from the cost of celebrations, we would like you to consider something we call a person’s “worth living assets.” These assets are, of course, those people and special things which make our lives worth living. In light of this grateful holiday, let’s take a look at how money relates to a few “worth living” assets.

  • Money cannot buy a family. Yet, money helps to provide the things we want for our families: shelter, food, clothing, healthcare, transportation, entertainment and of course, vacations!
  • Money cannot buy good health, yet money pays for good doctors, for medical research and medications that support our health.
  • Money on its own cannot do good, but, in the hands of kind, thoughtful and generous people it will feed thousands of homeless individuals this Thanksgiving. And it will support charities which represent all the good of which mankind is capable.
  • Money cannot buy freedom. Yet our money pays for our national defense. And may we be reminded that freedom is really bought and paid for with the blood of those who have been and are willing to give their lives for their love of this country, as well as those who receive serious injuries and come back to us disabled.

So this Thanksgiving we want to encourage you to give some thought to what your “worth living” assets are and join us in giving thanks for the money which supports all these wonderful and numerous blessings.

We wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving and wonderful weekend!
