I wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving! I hope everyone has a lot to be grateful for this year. Family, friends, health… even the health of family and friends. As always, I am so thankful to still be close to some of my oldest friends.
This year I am also extremely grateful for the new relationships in my life. I have met some wonderful people through social media. It’s bizarre to me to call someone you have not met in person a friend but twitter and google plus allow you to create friendships with people you may not know but that have the same interests as you. And more importantly, they give you an unbelievable opportunity to discuss your thoughts and ideas.
I am very grateful for the new relationships that have been created because of my children. Spending five or six days a week with other baseball parents proved to be an amazing catalyst for several new friendships. Through birthday parties, soccer and dance we have even developed very strong relationships with the parents of our three-year old daughter’s friends. You never know when a new relationship will come your way, it’s always good to keep your mind and heart open.
Lastly, I am so thankful for my wife, Clarissa, and our two children. My stepson Reece continues to be such an amazing little boy and a terrific big brother and Tatum has added a spark to my heart that I never imagined was possible.
So with extreme gratitude for all of you, I wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving. What are you thankful for this year?
