Let’s Talk Gratuity
Thanksgiving…the thought of it might make some shudder with the thought of a house full of relatives and friends that are set on drinking every drop of booze in the house and eating themselves into a coma, and of course there are those who think the best part of Thanksgiving are the deals on Black Friday where no matter how grateful you for what you have, there is always good cause to punch someone in the face over a flat screen t.v. for $80 bucks.
But really, Thanksgiving in my opinion should be thought of as a day to stop, take a look around you and see exactly what you do have as opposed to what you want. It’s a day to take a look at those relatives, with all their imperfections and see all they mean to you, because one day, Thanksgiving will come and they might not be there. Thanksgiving is a time to remember too that there are those out there who really have nothing. No job, loosing hope and wondering where their next meal might come from. It’s a time to maybe be nice to that one neighbor who seems distant every time you see them. Maybe it’s time to bury the hatchet with that one individual you just can’t find common ground with.
For me, I will be grateful for a few things. First off, Cindy. She’s a miracle! To think of the life I have, and the life I probably deserve, well there isn’t a greater gift than Cindy and all she brings to my humble world. Next off, my buddy Dave. Never did I imagine that I could care so much for another guy. (Not in that way you perv) Where I wasn’t given a brother by birth, I sure got one in Dave. Of course I am grateful that my mom and dad are still here, my sister and her family and I would be remiss if I didn’t let you know that I am grateful for every one of you. To think that somehow, I have managed to be on the radio consistently since 1989…and you are to thank for always being there for me.
A very happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.
