Giving thanks for the simple things in life

Thanksgiving Day is coming up later this week, as you might have heard, and it’s a tradition at our house to share some of the things we’re thankful for each year. Some years are better than others, of course, and some lists are more extensive.

Beyond the obvious (such as continued decent health and a healthy family), here are a few things I am thankful for:

- Not being a turkey this week. (Go ahead, insert your jokes here.)

- A wife and kids who balance the challenges of keeping me grounded while encouraging my flights of fancy.

- Twitter and Facebook friends, without whose virtual validation I would wander around and talk to myself about random things even more so than I do now. (By the way, #FF for @ing me this week: @ShellieT, @karenzach, @RealRiverJordan, @ BradMilner, @SBradyCalhoun, @lou1492, @bradmeltzer, @wdglover, @JaysonKretzer, @mikecaz.)

- Real-world friends with a sense of humor and imagination, who don’t seem bothered by my non sequiturs or Chinese curses.
