Having a good night's sleep, waking up in the morning, and being able to get out of bed on my own.

I'm thankful that I'm able to wake up every morning, for my health and family. I'm thankful to have God in our lives, peace and love in our hearts. I'm thankful for the bad times we encounter that shape us and help us become stronger. I'm thankful for life.

I am thankful I have managed to get thru the year thus far. For my wife and kids, our home, and the many things we have. I am also thankful for my friends here on DC.
I am also thankful for all the generous people that donate time, money, food, clothing, and toys to those less fortunate these holidays.

Without Buck, I'm having a difficult time feeling very thankful. Intellectually I'm thankful for my health, the roof over my head, my biological family and my DC family. Tears won't let me say more. Just suffice it to say, all you folks at DC are the wind beneath my wings every day.

Katie my dear, be thankful for the time you had with Buck! What if you had never found him?

Remember, you are loved by many...please take comfort in that.
We get by with a little help from our friends

Now BT, this is going to prove once and for all that I'm not long-winded.

What I'm thankful for;

First and foremost, for my religious beliefs and convictions. They guide me continually. I'd go further into this, but don't think this is allowed on this forum.

My wife and children come next. They are my life.

I'm thankful for my job, and the resources it provides form my family.

I'm thankful that my children have found wonderful companions in marriage.

I'm thankful for my 2 1/2 month old grandaughter and the love her parents give her.

I'm thankful for my good friends, both here in my hometown, and here in DC. There are some here with whom I have developed special bonds. But in truth, all of you are extraordinary people.

There, that's as short as I can get on this subject that is so very broad.
