A Day Of Thanks

I thought I'd follow along with many of my fellow bloggers this morning and talk briefly about some of the things I'm thankful for today.

I am thankful first and foremost for my wonderful wife, Gifted-1, and our three children. She spends all day wrangling this howler monkey farm and manages to keep a positive outlook without selling any of the children on the black market.

I am thankful for my extended family, some of which read and comment on this site. I grew up surrounded by family and it's helped make me the person I am today. That's a good thing, in case you're wondering...

I am thankful for the wonderful friends that I have, though I don't see any of them nearly often enough.

I am thankful to all the folks that read and comment on this site, both friends and family. It's a very heart-warming thought that anyone would want to read my pedantic rantings on politics, and I thank you for that.

I am thankful for my job and the folks I work with. Accounting is not the most exciting line of work, but the folks I am privileged enough to spend my days with make it a lot of fun.

I am thankful for the men and women fighting overseas and I honor their sacrifice. I may not agree with the war we are fighting, but I lay that at the feet of those that started the war, not those who are bravely fighting it. I wish them a speedy return to their families.

Finally, I am thankful for living in a country where people can have diametrically opposed ideals and fight them out with keyboards, instead of guns. We may not be able to agree on what's best for American, but at least we agree that the best is what we all want.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

It won't truly have success, I believe this way.
