Thanksgiving is a day for self-reflection, to look back on the year and all that you are grateful for.
I am of course grateful to have the job that I do, knowing full well so many are far less fortunate. And every night I thank God for the good people I have surrounded myself with day in and day out.
Over the last year or so, there are a few specific things that come to mind. I am thankful:
… for a wife who doesn’t mind too much that I talk about Greenfield … All THE TIME.
… for that spot being just a spot and nothing more. (Not me, but someone close to me).
… for the thousands of readers, contributors and users of Greenfield Patch who have given this new platform a chance.
… that my 4-year-old is the last kid in her class that wants to hold her daddy’s hand while she stands in line before school starts.
…. for the countless people I have met over the last 11 months: colleagues, sources and new friends.
… for the Milwaukee Brewers to have the most incredible season in the 25 years that I’ve been a fan.
… that my 1-year-old calls me “ga ga,” because I know someday he’ll want to, or will call me much worse.
… that the only thing that died on me this year was a refrigerator. A year without a funeral is a good one in my book.
… for Gov. Scott Walker and dump trucks full of pot: two readership goldmines.
… for a natural bypass around a completely clogged artery. Happy (early) Birthday, dad!
