Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone!

Today's Thanksgiving Day and I'd like to take a minute to celebrate this wondefully non-denominational and non-commercial (well, except for having to buy a turkey!) holiday.

I have a lot to be thankful for. I'm thankful for my family - my wonderful and loving wife Tiffany (who's very pregnant now with our second child) and my demanding but cute little daughter Maddy.

I'm thankful for having loving and supportive parents. I'm thankful that my father is recovering well from a mild stroke earlier this year. It was a scary moment for us and it reminded me of how important family and friends are. (if you have a minute, please read this: Stroke Symptoms: Knowing These May Help Save Your Life)

I'm grateful for our troops. I know that the war in Iraq is unpopular, but whatever your political beliefs, I hope you'll be able to take a moment and separate the warriors from the war and recognize their service and sacrifice.

I'm thankful for Neatorama's authors, who help me enjoy reading this blog as much as I like writing for it. And lastly, I'd like to thank you, dear reader, for visiting this blog. Watching Neatorama grow continues
to be a joy for me - I hope you'll continue to visit.

Happy Turkey Day! (And what are you thankful for?)

Rosi, I guess you don't know much about Thanksgiving if you think it's unique and not commercialized.

I'm thankful I don't live in a police state run by a chimp with a messiah complex.

@lucky: hang in there! I know all about depression (though not personally, thank God, there are people close to me who are prone to depression). Definitely seek help if you suffer from deep depression.

@Holly: Sorry to hear about your mother. And I'm thankful for the Texas Historical Society too. Oh, not the THC you had in mind? I jest.

I'm thankful for modern antibiotics and pain relievers. And chocolate, leftover pineapple upside down cake, and weekends. (oh, and my family, friends, and cool people like my fellow neatorama readers) : )

I hope you're all safe, warm, and full. : )

Happy Thanksgiving!

Even if you separate the warriors from the war, there's such a thing as "conscientious objector" You can get discharged if you have moral qualms about what the military is doing, and honestly who doesn't?
