It’s Thanksgiving and I want to take this opportunity to give thanks for the good things in my life and the good people in my life.
I am thankful that both my parents are still alive. At their age they do have some health issues but nothing real debilitating or immediately life threatening, so I am thankful for that.
I want to thank my wife for loving me and putting up with me for thirty years. God I know that has to be hard sometimes. She has given me four beautiful children and three decades of happiness even though there have been things that have been difficult for me, in the end, she always makes life worth continuing.
I am thankful that my daughter, Christie, has found love and happiness. And I want to thank her for putting up with me, I have acted very childishly but I do love her and miss her very much.
I want to thank all of my customers who have been with me for many years, many have become good friends and helped out during difficult times.
I want to thank my employees who have helped make this possible and also who have helped me through this difficult time each in their own way, Eric just for talking to me when I needed to talk, and Chris for inviting us out to his place this Thanksgiving, this year I will miss my daughter who is now 900 miles away, but being with a lot of people will make it easier and I very much appreciate that.
I am thankful that, although we have had some difficult times, we’ve always had food, shelter, and the basic necessities of life.
With that, I just want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!
