Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. By this time next week I expect I will be overstuffed on turkey, overloaded on football and overjoyed at spending a long weekend with my extended family. I will also have spent the entire month posting (almost) daily status updates on my personal Facebook profile about the things I am grateful for. I hope to be overwhelmed with gratitude.
At the beginning of November, in preparation for a month of gratitude, I spent some quiet time really thinking about the things in my life for which I am deeply thankful. You made the list! Yes, you. As did my ancestors, some of my other relatives, different technologies, and family – old and new, in all shapes and sizes, warts and all.
Today I offer a part of that list to you. In return, I’d love to hear what you are thankful for this Thanksgiving week.
Happy Thanksgiving to each of you! What are you thankful for?
Until next time – Have fun climbing your family tree…
