Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday.
With each year, my appreciation for the holiday deepens.
I have so much for which to be thankful.
I live in America, a place where most people in the world would choose to live if they could.
I have been presented opportunity after opportunity. Some of which I took advantage. Others I squandered. Nevertheless, I’m grateful for such opportunities. More grateful that in the world where we live, opportunities keep coming. For all who are open to them.
I married well. That choice produces fruit every day.
My kids make me proud. We live without regret in our relationships. I realize how uncommon that is.
I can worship anywhere, anytime. Without fear or repercussions. That liberty is precious to me.
Perhaps among my chief benefit is where I get to work and to whom I get to work alongside. I cherish this opportunity to wear the PalletOne jersey.
So, as I read this, I realize it could be perceived as a “brag” list. I hope you won’t take it that way.
Here’s how I wish you’d take it:
Chances are that you can make the same kind of list as mine.
Good job? I hope. People you love and who love you. Great community where you live. The opportunity we each have to act to make our life better.
Happy Thanksgiving! We are blessed!
