It’s my favorite holiday. No presents, no carols, no decorating (until you start on Christmas), just food and family. Also, for me this year, some golf and the State basketball and football games.
 
It’s the quintessential American celebration.
 
Plus, it’s always on Thursday. So you get a guaranteed four-day weekend, or maybe five, or maybe just blow off Monday and Tuesday too and make it a whole week!
 
Which probably means that at some point you’ve got time to think about what you’re thankful for.
 
Among many other things, I’m thankful for the chance to do this blog, thankful for our readers, thankful for the TAPsters who bail me out when the well is dry, thankful for those of you who send my your thoughts and opinions and – even when you don’t agree with me – nearly always teach me something new.
 
Most of all, Gwyn and I are thankful that our son and daughter will be with us. As they get older and go out on their own, your dread the holidays to come when they’ll have their own traditions and holiday plans – that don’t include you.
 
This year, once again, our house will be a place of food, love and laughter. Many thanks for that.

I could provide a very long list of things I'm thankful for and the vast majority of these things are because I was fortunate enough to be born an American.

I have wonderful family that hasn't had to endure true poverty and desperation. I am thankful that I was given the opportunity to become educated and along with that the opportunity to utilize that education in successful career endeavors. I am thankful that I am not told which religion I can believe in and can worship as I see fit. I am thankful that even though I don't have what many of our country's more wealthy citizens have, I have what I need to survive and am allowed to expand my endeavors whenever and however I see fit to achieve whatever I set out to do within legal limits.

Everyone is thankful for family and their health and for the loves that come into their lives. I'm thankful for all of those as well. But, I also include being an American in my "most thankful for" category.
