Lots to be thankful for

It’s easy to take what we have for granted.

We do it all the time.

In fact, we do it so often, there’s a national holiday to remember to be grateful.

Thanksgiving.

Forget this over-hyped meal shared between the Pilgrims and the Indians. Thanksgiving has turned into a commercialized holiday where families sit around a dinner table — maybe for the first time that year — to partake in a 15-pound turkey and pass around bowls of mashed potatoes and candied yams.

But it’s also a time when we can look around at our life — at the stack of bills on the table or the laundry piling up in the bathroom — and say, “Hmm, this isn’t so bad.”

So here are some — just some! — things I’m thankful for this Thanksgiving.

And yes, I’m thankful for you, too!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Indy!

Indy will turn 1 this December. I’m thankful I went to the Hawaii Kai Dog Park back in February and found this little guy in a cardboard box.
