My Mom loves Thanksgiving. It’s her favorite holiday. I have wonderful memories of this day and how mirthful (what?!) it can be. I feel truly blessed…God has been good to me. So, here are 10 things that are making me smile on this Thanksgiving.
> Children who laugh!
> My wife Tonia. She’s absolutely incredible.
> Walks along the beach. I’m being serious (see the picture). We just walked along the beach for the first time on a Thanksgiving. Gorgeous!
> Coffee. It’s still a gift.
> ValleyPoint Church. Thanks for loving me. You’re the best…love you!
> The northeast. This is just a great place to live. Love it!
> Family. I’m serious about this one too! We’re spending Thanksgiving with some of Tonia’s family this year. We don’t always get that chance. It’s been memorable.
> My six kids. I never thought I would have this many bodies running around my house. Can’t picture it any other way.
> Mentors. I’ve had great coaches in my life. Roger Evans, Jill Johnson, Larry Chute, Brian Pipping, Diane Pipping, Duane Boyett, Bob Schrock, Clayton Bjurstrom, Dwight Gipson, Gus Sareyka, Lee White, and Rodgers & Hammerstein (OK…no Rodgers & Hammerstein). Your investment cannot be described.
> Extras. I have more than I need…much more.
