Even though this has been a tough year with family issues, work issues, and the economy, I am thankful. Entering this week and the Thanksgiving holiday, I have resisted the urge of the masses and the retail industry to just pass right by on the way to Christmas. 

Or Festivus for the rest of us. 

I am thankful for my family, who I love dearly. My job, which I also adore ! It is nice, after 16 years in law enforcement, to again have that "I can't wait to get to work" feeling again. Thanks to all my friends at Apple. And I am thankful for life in general, again. Even though this year has been full of ups and downs, I look around and realize I do have it pretty good. And I'm thankful for my new internet friends and to finally have time to become part of the blogworld. 

And finally, I am thankful for my father. He has always been my hero and I am definitely a "daddy's girl". Now I watch him battling cancer with the same grit and determination that he displayed playing college and pro football, and with the spirit and heart he threw into his career designing offshore oil rigs. Even though I know he is fighting the biggest battle of his life I have faith he can beat this. Cancer ain't got nothing on my daddy. I love you Dad.

What are you thankful for ???
