I’m thankful for my family, for my two daughters who are healthy and at home; it reminds me that there are other soldiers who are stationed around the world, some in some not so nice places, and who cannot be home for Thanksgiving.
I’m thankful for my wife, a joy to be with, and who might have been working today; hospitals never close. When I hear the horror stories from the hospital, I’m thankful that our children are strong and healthy; some families aren’t so fortunate.
I’m thankful for my job. Whenever I whine to myself — which is almost every day on the way to work — that I don’t want to go to work that day, I always remind myself that there are a lot of other men out there who wish that they had jobs to go to.
I’m thankful that I’m an American; most people in this world weren’t born into wealthy and free democracies, and are living under tyranny and squalor.
I’m thankful that Al Gore invented this internet thingy; I’d have a lot fewer friends without it.
