It’s Thanksgiving Day and there is much to be grateful for. I’m personally grateful to you, dear reader, for taking a few minutes to read this post. Maybe someday in the near future you readers will have a baby or three and catapult this blog viewership into the double digits. Glorious times ahead.
Today is one of my favorite holidays not just for the gratuitous gorging and the all-day football-fest, but for the reminder about how we should think/act on a daily basis. I don’t mean we should eat 10,000 calories each day, though Michael Phelps makes it look okay, I mean we should focus on gratitude. Are there times where life could be a little brighter? Sure. But start with the fact that you are here and able to give thanks. Everything else builds on that.
A few family and friends who have graduated that we’ll be thinking about today – Jim, Gladys, Joe, Pam, David, Helen, Pete, and Eric. We love you and miss you and give thanks for the joy you brought us.
Thanks for bearing with me on this day of gratitude. I am truly thankful that that you have made it to the end of this short post and promise that more thoughtful editing is on the horizon.
