There is considerable chaos and uncertainty in the world right now. At times like this, I think it is important to step back and take stock of all we do have. It has been a rough couple of years for my family in many ways, but for all we have been through, we still have so many things to be truly genuinely grateful for.

My wife Jeri is the best person I know....I cannot express enough my thanks and gratitude for the great blessings she brings into my life every day. She is the best friend, lover, lifemate, and partner that anyone could possibly have. Our children Nicholas and Jackson are tremendous and unique blessings. Being a parent isn't always easy, but the rewards are deep.  We are also most grateful for our loving and supportive families, my mother HIlda, Jeri's parents Marsh and Gwen, Jeri's siblings Joe, Dan, and Marsha and their respective spouses and children, and my sister Lisa and her son Josh. We are also grateful for the time we had with our loved ones who are no longer with us, particularly Jeri's brother Jack.

I am extremely grateful for the fact that I have been able to make a living doing what I love, and for that I have to thank everyone of YOU, the readers, of this blog, the prospect book, and at Rotowire.

I am thankful for all the terrific friends I have, especally the ones I have been blessed to meet and know over the last two years of my journey.

But most of all I am thankful for the one piece of knowledge that can never be taken from me, the fact that I know what it is to love and be loved unconditionally.

What kinds of things are you guys thankful for?
