2011 Blessings

Before I launch into my rants against the inequality of this world, I shall take the time to give thanks my early blessings of 2011.

The second blessing of the day came out of Jacksonville, FL. The Mississippi State Bulldogs won the Gator Bowl. They won by a huge lead leaving little doubt as to if they deserved the win.

Today exemplified the blessings that are to come when hope and faith are maintained no matter what appears to the five senses.

I shall rant and rave tomorrow.
