today, or yesterday technically, we’re supposed to give thanks and eat a ton of food and relax with our families. weird tradition, but i’m into it. i love thanksgiving. i’m partial to my family even though they drive me nuts.
i was thinking tonight, while watching the jets dismantle the bengals, that there are lots of things i happen to be thankful for. i know life is tough for a lot of us, and it has not always been a walk in the park for me either, but there’s still a reason to step back and take stock in what we do have.
every day i deal with young people and families that are far worse off than i am, and i think i take that for granted. i guess i’m saying that it’s not that bad. whatever that might mean to you. i have a place to sleep. the power is on. i have music all around me that keeps me happy and sane. i have a loving family. i have someone special to spend my time with. i have both my legs. i guess it could be a whole lot harder.
here’s a little number from a good ol’ american who wants us NEVER to forget what we ALL have to be thankful for….freedom. 😉
i’m also thankful that 200 people read my silly website today. you rule.
