Happy Thanksgiving

On this day of thanks as celebrated in the US, it seems only fitting to share the things for which I am thankful.

  1. My wife and family for making everything worthwhile
  2. My friends, many whom I have never met in person
  3. My clients, who make it possible to feed my family, and who keep giving me work because they don’t know any better
  4. My readers, who seem to like this blog and other things I write
  5. My dogs, who worship the ground I walk on and who are good friends in their own way
  6. A group of doctors and nurses who made it possible for me to be here doing the things I enjoy
  7. Microsoft, for valuing the things I do and say, and for respecting my opinions even when different from theirs
  8. My podcasting partners (Marc Orchant, Kevin Tofel, Dave Ciccone), for putting up with my improv with aplomb, and for being very good people
  9. Mobile device OEMs, for providing lots of toys to play with
  10. All of the authors who write the books I love to read, for having both the imagination and talent to keep me in awe of what they do
  11. And most of all, I am thankful for Al Gore, for giving us the Internet that makes all of this possible

Have a safe and happy holiday and even if you live in an area that doesn’t observe this holiday, take a moment to reflect on the things that you are thankful for.
