Giving Thanks

 Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. It is four days of family, food, relaxation, and no gift-giving pressure. I refuse to participate in the insanity of Black Friday. In fact, unless it is to visit family I make it a point to not leave the house. 

My life is blessed. I know that and I thank God every day for it. I also know it could be taken away from me, or someone I love, in an instant so I take no precious moments for granted. It is truly a satisfying journey.

I wish for you and your family a happy, joyous, and peaceful Thanksgiving weekend. Whatever your circumstances you have something to be thankful for. Dwell on that for a while.

If you have a special Thanksgiving memory, or someone you want to wish an extra-special weekend, here's your chance!


  1. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, Bob! I very much enjoy the new direction you've taken with the blog and the great discussions in the comments.

  2. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

    I am thankful for 3 healthy babies and 2 healthy Moms added to our family this week. The twins are 34 weeks and doing well. They will live in NICU for a bit to assure continued growth and wellness.

  3. I am extra thankful I still have all three of my sons. One son was in a bad car accident last Sunday. Both drivers walked away without any major injuries (one bruised finger for my son and a minor concussion for the other driver). Both vehicles were totaled.
    It could have been so much worse for one or both families.
