Is Everybody Thankful?

Do you know what you’re thankful for today? Are you thankful? I know what I’m thankful for, and I’ll tell you, but first I began to wonder what others might be thankful for.

I’ll bet that President Obama is thankful that people will be with their families, eating, arguing and watching football and will give his website a break and leave the criticism alone for a day.

I”ll bet all these girls that twerk and tweet pics of themselves with nothing on will be thankful to let their gut out.

I’l bet the whole rest of the animal kingdom is thankful that they’re not turkeys.

I’ll bet somewhere up to 159, 469, 332 women are really thankful they’re not cooking today.

I’ll bet kids are thankful because this is one time their parents are good with them playing video games and not paying attention or going outside.

I’ll bet the Kardsahians are collectively thankful for their butts.

Turkey farmers are just, like, thankful.

And now what I’m thankful for this year. I’m thankful for my folks, not just for the incredible financial support they’ve given me but the encouragement and support of my new careers. My mom loves the Water Cooler blogs, my dad likes the more thoughtful ones and it’s nice to share the humor and thoughtfulness that goes into each one. One could say that it’s genetic but I think it goes beyond that, I know a lot of people that don’t really get along with their parents and vice versa, and I think it’s a great gift.

I’m also very thankful for my mind. I was reminded recently of the achievements of both hemispheres this year; my left brain has absorbed computer software and languages in less than a year-quite an accomplishment, and I’ve heard from numerous people asking “how do you think of something new to write every day” and that’s all you righty.

And it’s only just begun.
