    Yes. Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Americans.

    I am thankful for God(s). I am thankful for the loyalty and respect of my family and friends, and for all our experiences. I am thankful for my health and fitness. I am thankful for this awesome country and the opportunities it provides.

    Just escaped family. Ultra tbm Mormon going on and on about genealogy. I stopped them - let them know I actually see genealogy as racist (Mormons helped Hitler identify Jewish genealogies in WW2). I prefer to define family as Jesus did -

    Jesus’ Mother and Brothers
    46 While he was still speaking to the people, behold, khis mother and his lbrothers1 stood outside, asking to speak to him.2 48 But he replied to the man who told him, “Who is my mother, and who are my brothers?” 49 And stretching out his hand toward his disciples, he said, “Here are my mother and my brothers!

    In other words, friends are better than family.

    Family is not how the Mormons define it - not DNA or who begat who.

    Family is chosen.
