Happy Turkey Day All!

With Thanksgiving upon us, I decided that it would be a good idea to tell you, the reader(s), how fortunate I am to have had and continue to have so many things to be thankful for in my life. Sadly, there are plenty of people, young and old, who might or will not experience any kind of bonding experience, a truthfully painful fact.
Not too long ago, I wrote a blog about getting a ride home from a complete stranger after having a seizure while running. That was one thing, but what I intend to write about here is a personal blog about why, despite having epilepsy, I feel quite blessed with my current position in life. Here’s why: It begins with my birth family, a close-knit group of 10 who had super parents who taught each of us how to be good people and to succeed in life and, sure, enough, each one of us is successful in our own ways.
After that comes my own family- wife Ann and son Eric-who have certainly made my life complete.They are my reason for getting up each day, two people- a beautiful woman and a bright and talented son- that I would do anything for, any time. I love you guys!
Sadly, there are plenty of people who have no such resources, people either without or possibly without homes or money that are looking at very dark futures. That sounds cruel, sure, but that is the truth. In fact, I know one such person that I see from to time around town, a guy I will call Roy.
Now, I don’t run into Roy very often and we never speak at length when I do see him, but I make it a point to ask about him how his life has been. If it comes up, I’ll also ask him about his current battle to gain custody of his kids- an while thinking to myself and of how fortunate I am to have Ann and Eric.
I couldn’t tell you whether Roy is homeless or working but, judging from how he looks, I wouldn’t be surprised…if he were homeless. I didn’t single out Roy to be cruel. I did it because his life appears to be a prime example of how brutal life can be for some people…and that’s sad!
Here’s wishing my family and friends(near and far) and anyone else reading this blog a super Thanksgiving!
