I had a great Thanksgiving today thanks to all of the prep Kate did making the big meal (that included Tofurky, which seriously everyone should try), the company of our friend Rob, and Kate's brother John.
I'm fortunate to live in a country in which much is possible that isn't possible in so much of the world. I know some people view people giving thanks on Thanksgiving as being similar to large expressions of love on Valentine's Day, but I think that giving thanks on Thanksgiving Day should just be the punctuation day of thanks that we give all year long for the people (and things) we are thankful for (just as I view Valentine's Day day as the punctuation day for expressing love to our loved ones).
In no particular order (because it is somewhat silly to give rankings on thanks and many of the following are obvious regarding where they'd be ranked regardless of which order I place them in) today I especially reflected on the following people and things in my life I'm thankful for:
My wonderful, beautiful, smart wife, Kate, who understands, loves, and tolerates me, Kate's family, whom I embrace as my family, our cat trio, AMP (Alucard, Moto, and Pixie), all of whom daily comfort and amuse us, my many friends that, while we don't often get together as often as I or they wish, comfort me just knowing that they consider me their friend and like being around me, the many people I've met through having my comic book store, whom I consider friends also as I see many of them on a weekly basis (and seriously I'm not just saying that in a capitalist sense), and the comic book industry with all its levels, be it creators, publishers, distributors, and the comic book retail community, all of which is the key component that has made it possible for me to be as thankful as I am and to have the people around me that I have.
The think I'm not thankful for on a personal level is my faulty memory which has probably caused me to omit someone or something from my above thanks that I'm going to go "Doh" about within five minutes after posting this entry.
Thanks to everyone who reads my blog, please hug and say thanks to your loved ones for / from me.
