With Thanksgiving here, I’m thankful for a lot this year. Time for the annual “I’m Thankful” blog:
I’m thankful that I live in a state that has so much beauty, so much warmth, and so much sunshine. Wonderful canyons, mountains, plains, and vegetation abound. It’s warmer here than pretty much anywhere throughout most of the year, which I love, and the sun shines over 300 days a year. Compare that to about half that back where I came from!
I’m thankful for family! I love this holiday because of family. My son and his family travel in from Houston, and my daughter and her family travel in from St. Louis. My mom and step-dad live up the street and we have a huge reunion every Thanksgiving. I don’t get to see the grandkids near enough, but this week, I get my fill for a while!
I’m thankful for freedom. There are a ton of things wrong with this country right now, but with all the negatives out there, and the fact the liberals want to take more of our liberties away, we still have the freedom to do things like publish this blog every morning. Oh, I’m sure the NSA has a file on me a mile thick, but I don’t care. As long as they stay the hell away, I’ll keep the ray-gun in the closet.
I’m thankful that Barack Obama is almost toast. Just when I think this idiot is done surprising me, he makes a u-turn and does something even more stupid. We’re less than 14 months away from his ultimate demise from power, and I personally can’t wait. It’s also taught us we can afford to screw up with our presidential votes every once in a whle…as long as we don’t elect the Arkansas Princess with her bag of lies, we’ll be OK as a country!
Most of all, I’m thankful to be married to the world’s greatest woman. We’ve been together for 37 years as of next Thursday, and I can’t imagine going on this journey called life without her as my partner. It’s been an incredible ride, and I’m in for another 37 years, Babe!
To everyone out there, Happy Thanksgiving. Take a few minutes today, and count your blessings. God IS great, and has blessed everyone. Make sure to thank Him for his kindness in those blessings! Amen and amen!
And carry on world…you’re dismissed!
