I think it’s pretty obvious…
I am thankful for my family – Tiffany, Olivia, my parents, my siblings, my in-laws, my aunts, uncles, cousins, assorted others, and those who are family by choice rather than by blood. Among all the other things for which I am blessed, that’s number one.
And I’m pleased to tell you that those blessings will grow. Sometime in mid-February, Olivia will acquire the status of Big Sister. According to the ultrasound, we’ll be getting another girl. All of us are very happy about this.
My future is sure to be a chaotic one now that we’ll be playing a fulltime man-to-man defense in the house. (As a friend said to me, the difference between having two kids and having three is the need to switch from a man-to-man to a zone defense. We can still play the man, we’ll just have to give up on the double team.) But it’s one to which I’m eagerly looking forward. On this day, I want to publicly acknowledge my bounty, and to express my thankfulness for it.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. I’ll be back tomorrow.
