I am thankful for my family, for the wonderful friends I have, both new and old, for all the volunteers I serve with and live with, for all the people who allow us to serve them and who share their lives with us, for food, for pie, for the Bears defense, for tradition, for G. K. Chesterton, for tables with friends around, for whirly ball, for St. John's, for Amanda, for all the people and places I have been, for all I know who have made my life what it is. Thanks.
