What Are You Thankful For?
Let me start by saying THANK YOU to the fans, friends, family and complete strangers that have supported me in my, albeit brief, writing career! But, I have only just begun!
I continue to be both astounded and delighted by the support from people I have met through social media who support me just because. I am extremely grateful and humbled by you all!
My family and I have been through a lot in the past few years: the loss of my gainful employment two years ago, losing my father unexpectedly last year ,and various other life-changing and sobering events that happened to my mother and brother, too. Yet, despite all of the unpleasantries, I try each day to climb above the adversity and distractions to push on with my dream. I do not let these events deter me from reaching my goal--instead I find they give me inspiration to carry on and to give this the best effort that I can muster.
I am thankful for my close friends, the few who have given me inspiration and encouragement when I may have doubted myself. I am thankful for my mother and father, for instilling the unrelenting work ethic and for giving me the courage and inspiration to follow my heart, wherever that may lead.
I am thankful for my brother and sister, who keep our family emotionally strong throughout every rough patch that we experience. I am thankful for my sons, who continue to inspire me with their growth, consideration and wisdom that contradicts their young age. And I am thankful above all else for my loving and understanding wife, for being my rock and supporting me throughout all of my ups and downs.
So, I ask you:
What are you most thankful for?
See you in Wothlondia! Cheers and Happy Thanksgiving, all!
