I’m thankful that even though my job is demanding and sometimes chaotic, I have the time and location flexibility to be present for my family.

I’m thankful that my wife and I are good team in managing the daily circus of parenting two strong-willed young boys.

I’m thankful that my parents, and my wife’s parents, are in good health and finally getting to enjoy retirement after rocky starts.

I’m thankful that even though the leadership of my country is hopelessly broken, I see countless examples of people rising above it to support and care for each other every day.

Happy Thanksgiving if you’re celebrating today, and have a great day anyway if you’re not.
