Today is Thanksgiving here in the United States. In a perfect world, I would be surrounded by friends and family, feasting on turkey and green bean casserole, and watching the Macy’s parade. Instead, I’ll be packing and preparing to travel out of state for a three-week federal trial. Even though I may complain about the inconvenient timing of this trial, I know there are so many things for which I can be thankful. I’d like to share a few of them with you (in no particular order):
- I’m thankful for a daughter who has grown into an independent and intelligent young woman.
- I’m thankful for being good at my job AND having a job I enjoy.
- I’m thankful for an employer who can admit when he’s wrong.
- I’m thankful for family who cares about my well-being even though they are far away.
- I’m thankful that my car kept me safe and (relatively) unharmed in a 5-car pile up on the interstate last month.
- I’m thankful for every choice my ancestors made (even though sometimes I wish they used more paper).
- I’m thankful for a success team partner who really does try to keep me on track.
- I’m thankful for my sister, without whom I’m pretty sure I would go completely mad.
- I’m thankful for a community of genealogy friends and colleagues who have become like family to me.
- I’m thankful for my friends and relatives (past and present) in the armed forces that made it possible for this list to exist.
