Thanksgiving... time to give Thanks!

Thanksgiving ... time to reflect on what has happened this year and time to remember what I am thankful for.  This is the part of the year where I usually find myself wearing down a bit from a long summer and fall... and where I think that my life isn't really going the way I want it to.  Extreme stress from work, long/crazy hours, lack of time with family and friends, lack of seeing my parents (only see them once a year), heartache from failed relationships, questionmarks about my health ...  everything that really drags me down just before the end of the year.  I'm lucky in a way, I can hide my emotions pretty well ... when have you seen me have a bad day on tv?   LOL

However, it normally takes a day called Thanksgiving, to get me to realize how good I really have it in life.  I know there are a lot of people that have it a lot worse than I do ... I have colleagues in the television world that have lost their jobs in the past month, I have friends that have worse health issues than myself and I have a friend that lost his spouse this past year.

So, while I find it easy to feel down and almost sorry for myself .... I am reminded that I, in fact, don't have it that bad and that I should be thankful for all that I have.  I have a job, I have a vehicle, I have a roof over my head, I have some really good friends, I have some really great co-workers and I have a great family.... there are people that can not say the same.

What are you thankful for?
