Definitely one of the more…unique Thanksgiving holidays that I’ve taken part in over span of my lifetime. MC and Jim have gone down south to a family reunion for the next two days. However, because Starbucks is so friendly to the world [there’s a bit of bitterness here], Darco is working today and tomorrow. Naturally, I’m not going anywhere without my wife.
So, that means it’s her and me today. She’ll be home any minute now. MC bought a new TV this week [ruined my Christmas plan for her], so Darco and I will probably head over to the small, quaint house in the small town and enjoy the silence, and the large television.
I think that’s going to be our Thanksgiving, and no I’m not really disappointed in that fact. I took a stroll down memory lane here at FilingThePapers and discovered the first Thanksgiving post on the site. I’d encourage you to read it before continuing; choice of course is yours.
I’d say judging off that post, in the past two years I have plenty of reasons to be grateful. Realistically, I can’t wait for Darco to get home. I barely remember her leaving for work this morning, and I look forward to exploring some of that post with her. Sure, it’s two years down the road, but I mean come on:
- Beautiful wife
- Living on my own
- Incredible job
- Psychotic soccer program
- Traveling frequently
- Bills being paid
How can you not be grateful? It’s incredible that at one point we’re miserable because we can’t afford to eat, we can’t get out of our parents house, and we’re probably never in the position to be ready to start dating; and those are our priorities. Then, if we’re not careful, we’ll find an entirely new list of things to worry about. I am guilty of this, on several occasions, especially as of late. I made a commitment to get up today and read through the archives of this site, if for no other reason, as a reminder of God’s blessing.
I hope the same goes for each one of you.
Happy Thanksgiving, it’s great to be thankful.
