recalls the best “gift” he received during Thanksgiving as a child. “Thanksgiving gives me something to be thankful for here on earth, yes, but even more so eternally!

Conversations that came up consisted of topics like why God made us and what happens when we die. One of my cousins had just become a Christian, and I kept asking him questions about it.
