Thanksgiving comes once a year and gives everyone the opportunity to reflect & take inventory of our lives, and provides the formal time to express gratitude and appreciation for the gifts and opportuntities given to us. So…let the reflecting and all begin! What am I thankful for? I am thankful that I see so much in life… people, places, and all kinds of things. I have a wide variety of people in my life. I see everything from Cadillac Jack to Total Lack, and everything in between. I see those that make a difference in the lives of others, those that barely exist, and those that exist totally for themselves and their own pleasure. I am thankful for all the people in my life, as each adds their own special sort of seasoning. I am thankful for places in my life. I have had the opportuntiy to visit some beautiful places on the planet, both physically and virtually. Oceans, beaches, mountains, forests, salt marshes, swamps, rivers, lakes..each unique, each fabulous! There are some amazing sites all around us, and I have been blessed with an eye that appreciates tiniest details in nature, so I see amazing sites everyday. I am thankful for this gift of site and appreciation of places. I am thankful for things in my life. What kind of things? Technology for one. I am continually amazed by the advancements that just keep coming. Web 2.0 tools & apps, phones that keep getting smarter & smarter, connectivity like never imagined! These things are fun and exciting and provide all kinds of opportuntites.I am thankful for all things that are in my life. I am thankful for all the people, places & things in my life. I am thankful that I am here, in this country, at this time in history, surrounded by all types of people, places & things, doing what I do to accomplish a goal. For that, I send my thanks to God! How about you? What are you thankful for?
