I’ve got a lot to be thankful for this Thanksgiving, starting with the amazing support I’ve received from visitors to this site over the past few days.
As bad as things have been this year, they could be a lot worse. And there are a lot of people out there facing far bigger problems than mine.
So I hope you’ll join me, and take just a moment amid all the football and feasting and early Black Friday specials to find something to be truly thankful for.
And if the opportunity presents, lend a hand to someone in need, because there’s always someone a little worse off, and it doesn’t take much to make a difference.
So please, have a great Thanksgiving, however you celebrate it.
I’ll see you back here after the holiday.
