Like I said to a friend today "We have plenty to be thankful for, though. If everyone in the world had my troubles, no one would have a thing to complain about." It's true, and though I do have problems and faults and a host of other negatives with which to contend, I am filled with gratitude that in all the ways that count, it's a wonderful life.

Happy Thanksgiving to you, John. It's been a real pleasure reading your essays and perspective on life. You certainly have a place in my basket of gratitude.
