Right now I am sitting in my home office, and I have come upon a moment or two of reflection regarding the Thanksgiving holiday tomorrow. I was just about to allow some recently stressful events to sour my outlook on life
beyond my usual cynicism when the intention of the holiday crept in and rescued me from certain gloom. I forced myself to think of the good things in life, and I truly did begin to feel better instantly.
With that in mind, I thought I would share a list of the things that I have to be thankful for, and invite you to do the same. After all, we are a
booze-soaked, bleach swilling collection of dysfunctionals loose-knit group of fans, some of whom are certainly close enough to each other to feel like family.
The things I am thankful for:
- My wife and kids, who always have my back even when it feels like few people do.
- The fact that I have a job, and the rarest of employers who consistently tells me how appreciative he is of the things I do, plus has bonused me twice in the last 6 months despite the fact that there are no bonuses in my pay rate.
- Living in a region of Texas so totally loaded with great Mexican food places. Barbecue too.
- Top shelf vodka.
- My dog.
- Johnson's Elixir of Barian Fostate.
