I am really blessed in the fact that I woke up this morning. With all the funerals we attended, it's been hard to take that for granted this year. I am blessed because my wife is still here with me, and still seems to care what happens to me. That's a big one too. I am working hard on trying to convert my thinking to appreciating that I got to spend so much time with Jake and with Holmes. Jake was my nephew and Holmes was my cat. They both died untimely deaths this year. The cat food manufacturer agreed with us about Holmes' death and sent us a check for her vet and food bills plus money to replace her. But I digress, I am really trying to convert my thoughts to ones of smiles thinking about the good times with each one, taking Jake to his first professional baseball game, bringing Holmes and her sister Watson home the first time.
I am blessed by the people who visit here and say some of the nicest things. I am blessed by the people that I have met in real life. they all know who they are, and how much I like them. My big wish is that we're all here, and even more of us, next year, for an even better Thanksgiving, and that even more of us have met, and become closer friends!
Happy Thanksgiving to all, wherever you are!
