There are holidays that people and family do because of tradition.  Two years ago, something began here that I’m making a tradition.

What I have to be thankful for is too much to list.  Even in the darkest cloud, I want to see the silver lining.  For example, I’m not thankful for the results of the presidential election, but I am thankful that we live in a country where we can voice our disagreements.   I’m not thankful for the number of killings where those charged are acquitted because they have discretion to use deadly force, but I am thankful that our judicial system makes a record that carries on through history.

Of other things that I’m thankful for are people I met online that are true friends.  I met Racerrodig in 2012.  Two years ago, he sent me songs that he wrote and I put them to video in time to post for Thanksgiving.  Racer’s videos have now become our Thanksgiving tradition.

Below is the original post from 2014.

Have a safe and pleasant holiday.

Racerrodig is a precious, consistent supporter of Blackbutterfly7. I call him “Racer.” Through the years, he has shared his profound wisdom and great humor with us. Racer has often spoken about playing music, and several months ago he informed us that he started a praise and worship band with his son. They have been invited to perform in other countries.

Racer entrusted me with three of his band’s original songs to see if I could present them in a format so others can listen to them. So, I put them on video. The first video has some glitches, and I ask that you don’t allow that to distract from the beauty and talent of Racer’s song.

It wasn’t feeling like Thanksgiving to me this year. With so much trouble in America, I had gotten down. Racer’s songs picked me up and I hope they do the same for you.  As well, it is such a pleasure to hear his voice. Read the rest of this entry
