A year for which to be thankful...

I'm thankful for the past 12 months because:

1.  I learned the difference between skepticism and cynicism.
2.  I grasped the concept of "work to live" vice "live to work."
3.  I was shown sympathy and empathy.
4.  I grew the number of my acquaintances and the depth of my friendships.
5.  I began to understand the truth that "just because you can doesn't mean you should."
6.  I was forced to internalize that a lack of education doesn't mean a lack of intelligence.
7.  I embraced "new deals" and not "nude eels."
8.  I served in the company of great men (and women).
9.  I have friends who shared the truth... No matter how much it might have hurt at the time.
10. Rachel, Boo, and Savannah...

Happy Thanksgiving.
