Giving Thanks

Posted Thursday, November 24, 2011, at 6:42 PM

It's the evening of Thanksgiving and I started thinking of the the things I'm thankful for.

1) I'm alive.

2) My family and friends, including all of you.

3) I have a JOB. I may whine about it at times, but at my age, I am thankful to have a job. I truly do enjoy my line of work and am quite good at it.

4) My boss. She took a chance on me. She made me my earn her respect. She has shown her respect for me as a person and a professional.

5) That I live in a country where I am allowed to voice my opinion without fear.

6) The prospect of meeting and having coffee and some nice discourse with CJW and Buckshot.

7) That my Mother is no longer in pain, and was allowed to go the way she chose.

 

There are many other things, but these are at the top of the list.

Bonnie, that's good to hear.

Buckshot, if you come to Ada or Canyon counties for any reason, I'm sure we can figure out a good time and neutral site for coffee. I can always try to get to MH, but as you can tell, my last attempt failed miserably.

Happy Thanksgiving Roy, a day late. No access to computers for a week! Some bittersweet memories of Dad was shared but as a family, we are becoming closer than ever before.
