Thanksgiving is the best time of the year to pause, reflect on your life, and take stock.
If you think about it, I am sure you have a lot to by thankful for. It might not always feel like it. Things might not be perfect, but we are all blessed in one way or another.
Here are my reasons to be thankful this year. . .
This holiday weekend I really miss my dad. We had a nice Thanksgiving meal together last year. I can be thankful for all the time we did spend together, even at the very end. It still hurts that he is gone. No one was as good a listener as my dad.
A Teaching Job at a New School
There are quite a lot of qualified teachers who can’t find work. I have a job at one school this year. It’s a nice school with a great staff. I am enjoying my time there so far and very thankful that I get the chance to teach every day.
My Radio Shows
I love doing campus radio and am having a great time doing my show Monday nights on 94.9 CHRW. It makes for a long day with hardly any sleep to prepare me for the next one, but it is so worth it to go into the radio station and run a show live from the control booth.
I continue to be on 93.3 CFMU Saturday nights as part of DOPEfm. And my show is occasionally simulcast on a few other Canadian stations as well. Not only that, but I regularly appear on OUR show on 91.5 WPRK in Florida.
I’m sure there are more . . .
but I’m having a hard time thinking of them right now. My relationship with an amazing woman crumbled apart a few weeks back. We tried to stay friends but it seems like she truly is gone now. We won’t be together forever like I had envisioned. I wanted that so bad too.
But . . .
I have a family dinner to attend today
I’m really looking forward to that. It will be nice to see my mom, my brother, his wife and their kids. I’m only going to have one Thanksgiving dinner this weekend though. That hasn’t been the case for a number of years now.
However you are celebrating (or not) . . .
I hope you can take a moment to reflect on your blessings and the great things in your life. We all have something to be thankful for.
