Giving Thanks

On Black Friday, while hundreds of thousands of people are out fulfilling their material needs for stuff that they don’t really need, I think it’s important to list what we are thankful for at this time of year.

With the many thousands of victims in New York and New Jersey from Hurricane Sandy’s damage, I think it’s particular important to remember what we take for granted.

I will start a list, and I encourage you to repost this blog and add to my list or create your own list:

I am thankful for:

A Great Job (The Baysider)

Great Health (Just finished a Spartan Race and Turkey Trot 5k in the same week)

Living in New England and having support from so many friends and family in the area (The whole Vomacka clan, The extended Croes family and my college friends that have continued to be great friends post college years (Mike W., Jason P., Brian D., Jim S., Gurran K. and Nate D.)

My sister

The support of my parents throughout the years that has never wavered.
