Another Thanksgiving weekend comes to an end. This is always a favorite of mine, and this one did not disappoint. I hope the same is true for you.

And now as it comes to an end, I reflect once more on all I have to be thankful for: family, kids, a beautiful country. And a Constitution and the blessings of being an American. For yes, though we are traveling a tough road right now, this is still America, a nation of laws, a nation of rights, a nation of opportunity and compassion unmatched by any other nation on earth.

And as I offer my thanks for this amazing gift of ours, I wonder where we will be this time next year. What will we be pondering come Thanksgiving, 2010?

I’ll tell you what I think. One year from now, one year from this very night, I believe we will be offering jubilant thanks to our nation and to each other for having just taken our country back days before. Thanksgiving next year will fall a few short weeks after what I believe will be a monumental, magnificent election in this country. I pray that those of us who love this country, who embrace our Constitution and who honor our history, will be, at this moment next year, thanking God and our fellow Americans for having cast our votes in droves for America on election day just passed and bringing our country back to where she belongs. In my heart, I know this will be, for I have faith in my country. I have faith in her people.

So tonight, I thank my country and I thank you, her people. And I hope we will all ask God to bless our America every day until Thanksgiving, 2010. Just as we always have. Just as we always will.
