Yeah, I'm Thankful
It's the week of Thanksgiving, and this has been an amazing year. There have been so many blessings and opportunities and trips and new relationships that I could not even list all of the wonderful things that have happened this year (besides, you've read most of them on my blog). Sure, there have been bumps and detours, but they've wound up more adventure than annoyance.
What I'm so excited about this year are all of the friendships and relationships that have developed and fortified. This month alone, I've been reminded of how lucky I am to know so many great people... but not just know them... to call them friends. Some people say that social media will replace traditional relationships... to which I say, "PHOOEY!"
I'm thankful that I can meet Mike and Delaney for coffee whenever Delaney makes it back to town from Florida, and that our conversations seem to take off very naturally... and if left to our own devices, we could talk for hours.
I'm thankful that Drew and Janet will drop everything and come to my Drake class at the last second and share all of the joys of social media, and how the Age of Conversation affects all of our lives.
I'm thankful that Steve - while traveling to the opposite corner of the country and facing a tight publisher deadline - will conference call with the same Drake class and share his thoughts about changing the world.
I'm thankful that I have a great wife and two fun and beautiful daughters who put up with all of my ideas and dreams and let me follow my journey, even when I leave them scratching their heads.
I'm thankful for all of you readers, who enjoy reading my ramblings and rantings day after day, month after month.
And you? What/Whom are you thankful for?
Have a great Thanksgiving week! Safe travels!
