Congresswoman Uifaatali Amata quotes from Mother Theresa in her message for Thanksgiving.
‘The best way to show my gratitude to God is to accept everything, even my problems, with joy.’ This Thanksgiving holiday, I am sending you all my best wishes for homes full of happiness, health, and love. Psalm 107:1 is a well-known verse of thankfulness: ‘O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endureth forever.’
Uifa’atali wishes all a happy and blessed Thanksgiving.
“I always enjoy this wonderful time with friends and family, and the opportunity to get away from our busy lives and give thanks to God. While I am in the colder weather in Washington, D.C., I will do my best to recreate some of our delicious island foods for my family dinner, along with U.S. traditional Thanksgiving dishes, and I will be thinking of all of you.”
The Congresswoman said, “Work on remaining appropriations legislation for next year will resume at the U.S. Capitol the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. I will keep you informed whenever there’s information on bills that include funding or grant possibilities for our territory.”
