Wishing all my fellow blogger's and blog readers a most excellent Thanksgiving Day.
I will tell you what I am thankful for.
I am thankful to be alive, not entirely sure yet why, but I am.
I am thankful for my son, EJ.
I am thankful for my friends and neighbors.
I am thankful for the food I eat, and the shelter I have.
I am thankful for the car I drive.
I am thankful that I have my faith, which seems to be getting stronger all the time.
I am thankful for my enemies, for without them, I would not know how wonderful my friends are.
I am thankful that I can breathe, and walk, and speak.
I am thankful for every living thing that grows.
I am even thankful for spiders, as they eat flies.
I am thankful for the ability to express my ideas, and to feel all the emotions that ramble through my heart.
I am thankful for all of you.
I am thankful for the humor in the world.
I am thankful that one day I will be reunited with all those who have gone before me. "And a blessed day that will be."
I am thankful that I can laugh at myself. And, I do so, quite often.
I could probably write a thousand more things, and I am thankful for that, because there was a time I was thankful for nothing. Let the dark waters not close over you and may the world you know be full of sun and cloudless skies.
