I’m not Pollyanna, I’m not overdoing looking at the glass half full, and I’m not trying to fit a square peg of happiness, gratitude, and thankfulness into the round hole of current day reality.
I love Thanksgiving and what it stands for, for me and my family. And for us it stands for fun, happiness, gratitude, and thankfulness no matter what else is happening in the world.
I am thankful for my family being happy, healthy, and strong!
I am thankful for my family’s culture that sustains us during the bad times and propels us during the good times.
I am thankful that my family will spend a day together laughing at adversity and manifesting a great tomorrow.
I’m thankful we will be corny, silly, and overly affectionate while watching cheesy movies that reflect on love and togetherness.
I’m thankful for the strength of my wife and children to meet hard times with a smile and unrelenting determination.
I’m thankful for our faith in God and each other.
I’m thankful to have been able to travel the better part of the world throughout my life so I can say with absolute certainty that I’m thankful to be living and raising our children in what I believe to be the greatest country in the world, The United States of America.
I hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving!!
