Thankful in 2015!

As Thanksgiving rapidly nears, I am compelled to once again share the many gifts and blessings given to me through luck, hard work, fate, love, and friendship.

  1. I am so grateful for my wife, Angela, who makes my my life so complete and fulfilled.
  2. I am grateful for my family members (by blood and not–you know who you are), my dear friends, and my devoted readers.
  3. I am grateful to my cat of over 14 years who has taught me that you can adapt and grow–she thrives with one eye and lived on the street for years.
  4. I am grateful to my dog of 7 years who keeps me on my toes and makes me laugh daily. What a goof!
  5. I am grateful not to be running for the United States Presidential nomination.
  6. I am so grateful for the buttons labelled “Mute” and “Off” on my remotes.
  7. I am grateful for the opportunity to be part of your day–thank you!
  8. I am just grateful!

Please feel free to respond to this post or share with others, if you find something worth sharing! Happy Thanksgiving!

What a year!

What a year!
