Mrs. Shoebox and I along with Thing1, Thing2 and Grandpa and Grandma Shoebox, are heading across the great Midwest to spend this holiday with the extended Shoebox family.
Along with the start of the annual increase of my caloric intake, I’ll be spending some time reflecting this weekend.
There are many things for me to be thankful for:
- I have a Savior who loves me and through His death has provided me reconciliation with my Heavenly Father.
- I have a wife who loves me as I am and in spite of my many shortcomings.
- I have two sons who are funny, bright, energetic and quickly headed to becoming young men
- While we face challenges, we still live in the greatest country on the planet. I’m going to work hard in the next year to help keep it that way.
Finally, I’m thankful for you, our reader.
As the airlines say “I know you have choices.” I appreciate that you spend part of your time reading this site and are interested in the things we have to say. I’m always appreciate of the comments, supportive or not so much, I read them all. While I’ve met none of you, I’ve gained a number of friendships from my posting on this site. I look forward to making even more friends in the next year.
Have a great holiday! Enjoy your family and friends. I know I will!
