It’s funny how we only take time once a year to focus on the act of giving thanks. In my opinion, the world could use a few more thank yous. I am as guilty as the next person by not always expressing my appreciation of others or acknowledging how insanely fortunate I am to live the life I’m living. I mean, how often have I anguished over who to start on my fantasy football team or whether I’m going to have time to pick up a cup of coffee at Starbucks? How pathetic is that?! If these are my life’s problems, then I am one lucky guy.
And I am lucky. I am so thankful for all of the fortune that has met me in my 35 years. I’ve married a beautiful, strong, intelligent woman who happens to be a fantastic mother. I have two amazing, beautiful children (not to mention the coolest kitty on the planet). I own my own home. I have a job I love. And, to top it all off, I’m damn good looking. (grin)
Yes, I have a lot to be thankful for. My challenge to myself is to remember this for the next 364 days.
