So I have a love/hate relationship with Thanksgiving; however, it is good to take the time to reflect on what we have to be thankful for and spend time with friends and family. Too often in our lives we get so busy that we barely register how blessed we are, even when things may be going wrong, or we focus on what we don’t have. I am of course extremely grateful for many things including my family and the wonderful friends i have both in real life and those i’ve never met except online. I have a good (if sometimes frustrating) job, a nice house, a decent car, and many amenities that make life pleasant. So to all of you, whether you celebrate or not, thank you for being in my life. I’m a better person for knowing you.
