    In the spirit of this wonderful day of gratitude, what are you all thankful for? I'll start...

    My health (beating cancer)
    My wonderful BYC and offline friends
    My son
    My flock of chickens
    Our home...

    There is more, but here it is for starters.

    I have so much to be thankful for :

    Family, love - above all the Princess. Together we have created that which I never had as a kid.
    Faith and sobriety - for me they are linked.
    Friends.
    Health.
    The natural world which heals me.


    That's enough for now, but know that I am a lucky, lucky man.

    Thanks for:
    My salvation purchased by Jesus Christ,
    My immediate and extended family,
    My BYC family and all those friends that are "closer than a brother",
    All the blessings that our "piece of heaven" allows us, and
    the knowledge that we do not walk alone in our difficulties.
