Thanksgiving Turkey
While in many ways 2010 was a tough year, there are still many many things to be thankful for. Here is a list of things I though of for myself:

 

  • A job. Not something to be taken for granted these days.
  • Food to eat.
  • A roof over my head
  • A wife that loves me.
  • 2 nephews.
  • 2 sisters and 2 brother-in-laws.
  • My mom.
  • Fall colors.
  • Fresh clean crisp air to breathe in.
  • A good church.
  • Good friends.
  • A working car.
  • walks in the forest preserve.

I could go on a while but I think you get the drift. What are you thankful for?

Here’s wishing you and your family a very happy Thanksgiving!
