So much has occurred this week that I thought I would write about being thankful for my father and mother.

I’m so thankful that my father is doing well. After the scare that he gave us, meaning the family,¬†earlier this week, I’m glad he is in essence okay.

Not sure if it was a front for us, children and the wifey, but he was always in good spirits.

She trudges even when I know she doesn’t feel like it. I’m thankful for all she does for me personally as well as the household.
