Ok so the Thanks Mike thread is working. I talked to him briefly and told him about it, he stopped in and read it. Going to print it out in a few days and send him a hard copy. He’s incredibly appreciative and the comments are very cool.
Playing on that thread, it’s Thanksgiving. In addition to the million things I am incredibly thankful for, I wanted to do another thread here along the same lines, that will hopefully produce MASSIVE amounts of response to be forwarded once again.
My thankful list could be a mile long and still stop short of mentioning what I should be thankful for. In addition to an incredibly blessed life and career, I’ve got an incredibly beautiful wife who’s about a billion times prettier on the inside than she is on the outside. I’ve got 4 incredibly beautiful children who are truly kids with HUGE hearts. They’ve come to realize that a wheelchair is nothing more than a device that helps some people get around, nothing more. They understand being good people and making other people feel good about themselves is about as good as life can get.
Adding to that list, the Sox fans around here know that I sometimes post over on Sons of Sam Horn, better known in Sox Nation as SOSH. I have had the opportunity to meet some of the members of the board in person. Two of those people are Baghdad Jamie and his wife Favreu (names on the board!).
Anyway, Jamie is currently serving his second tour of duty in Iraq, and he’s slated to come home VERY VERY SOON. God willing he will do so complete, and healthy.
To say I am thankful for what the men and women of the armed forces do for us is pitifully short and woefully inadequate but for now it will have to suffice.
I’d like to make this thread one filled with people who are thankful to our troops, postings. Post a thank you to the men and women that serve our nation and other freedom loving nations around the world and I give you my word I will have the whole thing in front of the eyes of those very people.
