Today is Thanksgiving and I wanted to share the thing that I'm most thankful for: my family. When it comes to family I hit the jackpot. My wife is absolutely incredible. Period. She is the most amazing woman that I have ever known. She loves me in spite of all my quirks, my messiness, my need to always be right and win, and my love for aggravating her to no end. I have the best parents and grandfather in the world. I have worked with students for over 12 years and I've seen great parents and not-so-great parents. Mine are easily at the very top of the list. The investment and love that my parents and grandparents have provided me over the years have made me who I am. When it comes to brothers, I also hit the lottery. My brother is not just my sibling. He's my best friend. A guy couldn't ask for a better best friend. And his wife is a definite keeper. Christie is a great fit in our family and Johanna and I love her. And when Jo and I got married my family expanded even more. My in-laws are fantastic and have really been a great support to Jo and I. And the more I hang out with my brothers and sisters-in-laws, the more I realize how much of an absolute blast they are...Not to mention they've given us the most awesome nieces and nephews on the planet.
All of that to say this: Today, I'm thankful for family. When it comes to family, I've got it good. Real good. God has blessed me beyond measure and I'm so grateful to get the chance today to express my gratitude for all His goodness.
