I’m spending the week before Christmas in Texas at my sister’s place in San Antonio. Being with her fiancé’s family this evening I realize that I have so much to be thankful for. Living on this country at this point in history I have opportunities that people a hundred years ago could only imagine. I am blessed with a loving family, a dear wife and a great job to go back to once this vacation is over. I am truly blessed and so thankful for that fact.
