Give thanks

This year, like every other, I am heading down to my parents house in Rhode Island to celebrate Thanksgiving with family, fun, and football.

Here are some things I am thankful for this year:

  • How often I get to see my family
  • Evan
  • My friends, and every single moment I get to spend with them
  • Cooper
  • My health, though it has its challenges I feel blessed for everything that IS working
  • Tom Brady
  • A warm home
  • Writing
  • My job
  • Coffee
  • Sunny days
  • Travel


I wish you all a blessed Thanksgiving.



Today I am feeling incredibly thankful for all of the things going right. It is so easy to focus on what is going wrong, because sadly those are the things that often consume our thoughts. I urge you to turn that thinking around, and you’ll find that the amount of things going right is actually pretty unbelievable.

I may not be the healthiest person, but I am extremely lucky for the health I have. I may not have the most friends, but I have the best ones. I may not have disposable money, but I finally have a savings. I am not perfect, but I’ve found someone who loves me anyway. I may not get to see them every day, but I have the best family in the world.

Thankful is seeming to be too weak of a word.
