To be thankful

I am not just grateful for turkey
I am thankful for these things:
For mom and dad for raising me well
For you teaching me how to ride a bicycle
For helping me with my homework
For showing me the difference between right and wrong
For always being patient with me when I was acting difficult
For providing guidance by taking me to church
For helping me stay physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight
Thanks to the Boy Scouts
For my sister because she is a wonderful person
For her ability to put up with my strange ways
For all the trees we climbed and the bikes we rode
For the tickle fights and drawing on each other’s backs before going bowling on Saturdays
For Saturday morning cartoons…those were the days
For all of those great birthday parties at Funway, Showbiz Pizza and the movies
For all of the sports I was in like swimming and track
For playing baseball as a catcher all those years and even winning trophies
For receiving my high school diploma and a college degree
For all of the support and encouragement from my family
For making good friends and being a great listener as well
For my excellent health condition
For the numerous vacations I have been on
For my love and passion for music and what it has done for me over the years
For the gift of writing
For McDonalds even when they screw up my order because it’s an American tradition
For late night conversations with friends
For good talks with my dad that I will never forget
For bike rides and talks with my grandpa
For photographs and memories
For magnificent sunrises and sunsets
For all of the laughter I have enjoyed
For rainy weather (yes that’s right) because it washes the dirt away
For the hopeful promise of tomorrow
For modern medicine and surgery improving my quality of life
For eventually meeting the girl of my dreams; my wife named Denielle
For the tremendous joy and wonderful experiences we have enjoyed so far
This year is a special year to really reflect and give thanks to everyone for never giving up on me for love outshining the bad for life to go on
I am so thankful for having a solid job with benefits
Having a nice new apartment to live in
And truly being part of a wonderful and blessed family.
