Happy Thanksgiving!

DQ here.  Just want to pop in to say Happy Thanksgiving to you all.  Perhaps for this unique holiday we can share with each other what we are thankful for.  I’ll start.  I, of course, am most thankful for my beautiful wife.  We’ve been married 36 years and each has been better than the last (and the first one was pretty fantastic!).  I’m thankful for my two boys, both of whom took a while to get their feet under them but both of whom are now well headed in the right direction and fine young men I am quite proud of. 

I’m thankful that, unlike Bookworm, I’m not a blogger, but I get to sit in and sometimes contribute to the discussion among all the wonderful people she has gathered here.  I’m thankful for Bookworm herself, a marvelous person who, next to my wife, is my best friend in the world. 

I’m thankful that the false “hope” for “change” of two years ago appears to be being replaced by a real hope for a real change in the right direction. 

I’m thankful I’ve been blessed with a life full of nearly everything life has to offer.  I have no one to blame but myself if I have not taken full advantage, because my life has been filled with boundless opportunity.

But enough about me.  What are you thankful for?

P.S.  Because Bookworm is on vacation and may (or may not) have trouble blogging, I’ll be posting a bit in the next few days.  Please check back and join in what I hope with be some fun and interesting conversations.

Be Sociable, Share!

    So much to be thankful for, DQ:
    My wife, who can still make me feel like a young man of 20 and who has made me a much better man today
    My children, who continue to teach me new lessons about life
    My friends near and afar who have stood by me through thick and thin
    Especially, my friend “Dave”, who taught me the power of those two simple words, “thank you”
    Those that tried to inflict harm against me, for the lessons they taught me about forgiveness and the type of person that I wished to become
    For my parents, especially my just departed father, for giving me a loving home and always challenging me to do better
    For Book and my fellow Bookworm room bloggers, for making me think
    For being an American, there is no greater honor and responsibility
    For those that put themselves in harms way to defend my right to be an American
    And for God, from whom all blessings flow.
