Happy Thanksgiving!

It’s a big day today for many people. A time to get together with family and revel in the massive amounts of food placed before us. Ok, sure, that isn’t the reason for Thanksgiving, but it is still a good excuse to come together and to express our gratitude for the things around us.

I am grateful for many things. Some are silly and others are grand. I try each day in my life to feel that gratitude, and that is something I believe everyone should do. Appreciate what you have, even when times are tough. So for now, let me thank a few people:
