Pin It

Jive Turkey

That turkey is one smooth cat. Going down.


I’m thankful every day, just to wake up. Period. Family and friends make it that much sweeter. We’ve all got problems. We all want more. Something more. But what really makes me happy, is sharing what little bit I have, with those that have less.

I was stationed in Korea for 1 year, in the Army. I remember spending Thanksgiving alone, in the Mess Hall. Cold, damp and lonely. No decorations. No inviting smells. No comfy couch to relax on after dinner. No laughter. No love. Nothing like home. But I was still thankful. Why? Because I knew that someone, somewhere, appreciated myself and my Army Brothers being there. And I may have been alone, but at least I had a meal to eat, and a place to eat it. Think about that next time you sit down in your warm house, to eat a hot cooked meal.


In no particular order, I’m thankful for:

  • sun
  • rain
  • family
  • friends
  • pets
  • laughter
  • sharing
  • hugs
  • love
  • touch
  • sight
  • sound
  • internet (it brings us so much closer together)


Sure, I have a lot more to be thankful for. But with the things above, I’m doing just fine. Davin drew this picture…just for this blog post. I’m very thankful for it, and him.



Happy Thanksgiving!
