No Black Friday for me, I'll be working instead. Good luck if you plan to brave the crowds tomorrow.

I am thankful, first and foremost, that my parents raised me to respect others without regard to my personal feelings, and without expecting anything in return. I'm thankful that they taught me manners. I'm thankful for my wonderful, caring wife. For my health, and the opportunities I get to help other people with their needs.

Happy thanks giving everyone. I like thanksgiving because it's the one day a year that you don't have to cut a pie into six or eight pieces. Two will suffice.

Happy Turkey Day to ALL!

Why am I thankful?

I am thankful because my wife still loves me, and is not an ex-wife.
I am thankful for Frank - though I do not yet love him, I pray that in time I will.
I am thankful I did not die 03-08-09 (Multiple PEs found)
I am thankful I did not die 10-23-09 (Kidney failure with a score of 9.4) - Creatitine level came back to 1.3 in 7 days
I am thankful for finding this Forum, and for the many, many kind people here.

I'm thankful for new hip joints made of ceramic, a good ole bike, new trails, a great wife (she had a shoulder replaced this year, it was her turn for surgery) a great country and BF is a great new asset in my biking experience.

Every day is thanksgiving for me. Even leaving aside the fact that Christians have something to be thankful for every moment of their lives, I'm continually thankful for my weight loss. Not a day goes by that I don't find some cheer in not being 400 pounds.
