What are you thankful for?
This week starts the holiday season in America with a whole bunch of food, football, and family (notice how food and football got the first two spots). But it does give us pause to be thankful for what we have.
It’s been a year full of emotional highs and lows for me. From the death of my father to the re-discovery of my Colombian roots, it has been a wild ride. But for me, there has always been one constant for nearly 30 years.
I hope you’ll allow me to offer this week’s Extra Points to express thanks for the most important person in my life. Barb and I started dating in high school and got married 3 years after graduation. She had no idea what she was getting into! I am thankful not only for her but for her patience, perseverance, and undying support. In a world of high volatility, for me she is my rock.
What, or who are you thankful for? Make sure you show that appreciation this week.
But don’t forget the food and football;)
