On Thankfulness

I scraped my plate and placed it on the counter in front of the DFAC worker. "Good mornin'", I cheerfully wished her.

"Good morning," she replied. "How are you?"

"I'm so good it hurts."

"It's good to be thankful," she said. And it is.

We celebrated a Thanksgiving lunch today. I managed to restrict myself to a not-quite-obscene amount. Even now, in the midst of a recessession, and facing a rougher economic forecast than many previous US citizens, we still have much for which to be thankful.

Yes we do, friends being first and foremost in all of it. Especially friends who give up so much for the world at large.

Be safe John and Happy Thanksgiving.
