For those of us in America, today is Thanksgiving Day! I certainly try to remember to be thankful throughout the year, but this is without a doubt my favorite holiday. Football, food... and four days off from work.
Here's hoping the Lions beat the Packers - that would certainly be something for me to be grateful for.
But beyond that, I know I have a lot to be appreciative of. I have a loving wife, three great kids, a good job, a roof over my head a lot (and I do mean a LOT) of food we are putting on the table today. What can I say? I like to cook.
It would be easy to look at glass half-full or half-empty. Being diagnosed with Type-2 Diabetes was a surprise this year to be sure, but I am looking at it as an opportunity to improve my eating and exercise habits, and hopefully I will be better for it in the long run.
Sure, work has been incredibly busy this year, but I have a job I enjoy, co-workers that I really do like and the opportunity to provide for my loved ones. That could be a whole lot worse.
And sure, if we want to put a video game spin on it, having a handful of new consoles certainly gives me a reason to be thankful - but more so that I get to play some new games with my family (both video and some board games), spending time together.
Hardly the last thing I'm grateful for, I have readers who continue to visit this blog and help keep me energized and excited about this hobby of mine as well. We have a great little community here and at plenty of other sites as well. Take care, and for those of you celebrating this holiday - Happy Thanksgiving!
