Happy Thanksgiving Day to all…

Happy Thanksgiving Day to all… and as I sit here today and ponder our future once again it allows me time to reflect upon the things I should be thankful for.  This will be the last Thanksgiving we have in the house that we have lived in for the past 16 years. This makes it a somewhat sad holiday until I think about all the things to be thankful for…

I am thankful for my wife and kids who mean so much to me… and without them I would not be complete.  I am thankful for the job I have had for the last 17 years and the people that I have been fortunate to work with.  I am thankful for each of my friends and acquaintances I have that have touched my life.  I am thankful that we have been fortunate in life. I am thankful for all the little things that go unnoticed by so many… the sunrise and sunset… the twinkle in the stars… the green in the leaves at spring… the songs of the birds…\

There is so much for us to be thankful for and at times I wonder if we Americans remember all that we should be thankful for… and with that I want to thank all those serving our country overseas… may you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day!


  1. It's easy to give thanks for life's big blessings, but the small things in life are just as important to remember.


  2. Awww! This was a really nice post. There really are so many things to be thankful for -big and small. With such a generous spirit as you have, I'm sure you guys had a great Thanksgiving.
