Being Thankful

So what are you thankful for?

  • I have a job
  • I’m in decent health
  • My wife still thinks I’m worth keeping around after 20 yrs
  • My children actually think I’m cool most of the time

There are so may times that I don’t appreciate what I have and it’s not just because it’s thanksgiving time that I’m feeling this way.  I feel truly blessed by the company I have been keep lately.  There are too many to list individually, but I wanted to especially thank the SQLFamily I have found and become part of in the last several months.

From good advice, to new follows and sources of incredible information, to a laugh when I really needed one, I am so thankful for all of you and I’m really happy that you have all come into my life.  You have inspired me to run a 5k, study for a certification exam, and even make an attempt at becoming a thought leader.  I’m taking positive steps in so many different avenues I feel like I am making the progress I’ve been attempting for so long.

I think that a support group is necessary and essential for growth, and I really feel like I have found it.  So thank you, and I hope that in some way, I can give back what I have been so graciously given.
