Outside of the food and football, Thanksgiving is one of those holidays where you can actually take a step back, put your life into perspective, and consider how fortunate you are.
Let me pause for a second and just say that if I was a REALLY good writer, I could make some wonderfully enormous sweeping generalization about giving thanks that would have people nodding and readers sitting in front of their laptops with tears in their eyes. But I’m not that guy. So I can only speak on behalf of…well, me.
I’m thankful for a lot of things.
I’m thankful for my friends and family, the people who love me, the people I love, and my dog, Dug, who licks my face and jumps on me no matter what.
