Thanksgiving 2008

We're going to spend Thanksgiving with our good friends Wendy and Guido and their kids. My son's mother gets him on Thanksgiving, so we'll see him tomorrow.

I've got plenty to be thankful for this year. First off, for the continued good health and happiness of my family. I never, ever take that for granted, particularly after my father survived major cancer surgery a couple of years ago.

I'm thankful that we just elected a really smart, able guy for President.

I'm thankful that I have a good marriage to a wonderful woman.

I'm thankful that there was such a backlash to Proposition 8; maybe we will eventually have full civil rights in this country.

I'm thankful that Kim and I are both employed. People close to us have not been so lucky. Take a moment today and send out some good wishes to them for a return to employment.

I'm thankful that my plan to change careers has continued without any major bumps.

I'm thankful that the police brought the guy who murdered my friend Mark two and a half years ago was brought to justice last December. He's in jail, awaiting trial. It's expected that he'll be convicted.

I'm thankful, too, for the many excellent bloggers I've found in the last couple of years!
