Thankful

There are countless things to be thankful for in my life. Here are the highlights:

I’m thankful for my wife, Emily, and daughter, Madelyn. They are the lights of my life and keep me going even in the toughest of times. 

I’m thankful for my family and friends. They have supported me and been there for me always. 

I’m thankful for the experiences that have led me to where I am today. Good and bad, I am who I am because of them. 

I’m thankful for the good news that I got promoted to AT1. I didn’t expect it, and I didn’t have any hopes for it, but I’m still proud to finally achieve it. 

I’m thankful for what my future holds, and the prospects that my writing may bring. I’ve dreamed of being a writer for years, and it now seems as real and attainable as ever. 

I’m thankful for football. The Denver Broncos are the reigning Super Bowl Champs, and I love the Texas Longhorns no matter what. 

I’m thankful for so much more that words can’t express. 

I know that the traditions that this day’s celebrations are based on have auspicious beginnings, but it does not mean that you cannot still enjoy your time with family and friends. Celebrate the things you are thankful for, and don’t sweat the things you wish you had. Be glad for the things you do have. 

And for fuck’s sake, don’t go shopping. It can wait. 

Happy Thanksgiving y’all.
