Thanksgiving

Well, the first thing I’m thankful for is getting to sleep in this morning!! It’s a facet of one of the many things I’m thankful for this morning: my life is pretty darn easy. I have good work, and by any sane standards my life is one of comfort and ease.

But having a life of comfort and ease wouldn’t mean much if I led it without the love of my family and friends. Just time on the sofa together.Letters from Biggest Guy, an IM from Middle Guy, or a hug from Littlest Guy. Waking up with a sleepy TG. Talking over dinner with my friends. Time in Vegas with friends, bloggers, (and bloggers who are friends!) and loved ones. This week, swapping stories about our motorcycle racing exploits and comparing sore muscles (I’m damn sore this morning, I’ll have you know).

Seriously, I have the most amazing people in my life, and many of them are people I have never met except by writing back and forth on the pages of this blog.

I’m thankful for all of it.

  1. How is that son doing in the Army? I have not read anything here in a while about him.
    I had a great Thanksgiving. My Marine son finished a deployment with the 13th MEU just in time to fly home for Thanksgiving. It had been a year since we had seen him.

  2. Thanks for asking; he’s doing very well, is incredibly happy, and is more convinced than ever that he made the right decision (which means that, due to the laws of parental transitivity, I’m happy and convinced that he made the right decision).

    I may get to see him over Christmas (there is a rumor that he’ll get leave) and will be in Georgia in January to see him graduate and then head off to Airborne School.

  3. Hey Marc,

    Been trying to get a hold of you but haven’t been to sucessful. My name is John and I know you from Professor Jacobs’ class at Berkeley (think…). I have in my possession a letter written by you to Professor Jacobs on my behalf. I finally tracked him down, gave him the letter, and he found it enlighting. What I need, what I want, is a thin slice of your wisdom to spice up my application for graduate school. I know what you’re thinking, so I have prepared a presentation I think you will find uplifting.

    Anyway, ride safe and I will look foward to your e-mail. John Munger
