Takeaway Listeners Give Thanks

Thursday, November 24, 2011

This Thanksgiving, we want to know what you are thankful for. We speak with two listeners who we have talked to before. Both were hit hard by the recession, and ask them what is worth giving thanks for this year. Cynthia Norton recently found a job as a caregiver after spending months unemployed. Last year at this time, she was sitting in a park with her dog wondering where she would go. She had no home, no income, and felt helpless. This year, Norton will be having dinner with the landlord of her new home. Lyndon Dees is still seriously underemployed.

Dees lives near Oklahoma State University, where two women's basketball coaches died in a plane crash on November 18. This Thanksgiving is particularly meaningful to him. Dees is planning to celebrate with his father and friends.

I'm thankful for another year of prayer and life with God.
