On this Thankful Thursday, I am grateful for the gifts that Wesley Gwinn brings to my life. Wesley is the son of my late nephew, Danny, and Denise. Wesley is the kind of son who would make any parent proud. He is an excellent student, well spoken, respectful, interested and interesting. He is a junior at Appalachian State University, but currently is an intern at the Heritage Foundation in Washington.  Although a very conservative foundation, the experience will give him an opportunity to rub shoulders with students from all over the country. He will also get to hear and meet a lot of the movers and shakers in Washington. He is very interested in politics and this summer will do an internship with Senator Richard Burr of North Carolina. He has already been featured in some safety commercials on television targeting teenage drivers. Wesley has a broad range of interests and is a good conversationalist. On this Thankful Thursday, I am very thankful for my great nephew, Wesley Gwinn.

Thankful Thursday is a day set aside to recognize the gifts of someone to our lives and to let her or him know of our gratitude. Develop an attitude of gratitude. Say Something Nice; Be a Lifter. You will be glad that you did.
