Thanks for the great reminder that life in the 50's was a much more thankful time. I'm glad I was born in that era with appreciative parents. Would be a good devotion.
Both my mother and mother-in-law were children during the Great Depression and both were very thankful. When you have almost nothing, you tend to be thankful for almost anything.
I was also born in that era. I remember working in a nursing home in the early '70s, and those patients loved watching Lawrence Welk!
Your piece reminds me of when my grandma would watch Lawrence Welk. It was indeed a simpler time.
Our generation truly knew how to be thankful, and we still do. We can teach gratitude through example and by our faith. Very nice reminder in your writing.
This is a nice take on the topic. We can learn so much from that generation.
