I'm thankful for a wonderful, loving and supportive family. I'm thankful that I'm able to occasionally pull my head out of my butt. I'm thankful to all the people of this world who work hard to make a positive difference in the lives of the human race and the human individual. I'm thankful for friends and colleagues who enrich my life.
