I am thankful for God’s paintbrush. I cannot see a sunrise or sunset and not feel gratitude for the beauties of the earth.

A hefty +1 to what you guys have already put up. Many of the responses would be at the top of my list as well. I had a couple more that came to mind related to me.

1. Good health. Watching some good friends struggle with health problems and others with pre-existing co-morbidities sweat out the pandemic has made me appreciate relative good health. There is also the realization that it can be fleeting.

2. The "quickie". Not what some may be thinking, but I mean the opportunity to sneak out of a busy day, fish for a couple of hours, have success, and return to be with family by suppertime. In the crazy covid thrashed life the quick outdoors trip helps me to reset.

3. A dog. Nothing like a loyal dog to spend time with you when others cannot. It has been a real help during the pandemic and dog to human transmission of Rona has not yet been demonstrated.

4. Faith. Whatever ones faith system, it is an anchor against pandemic related despair and a bulwark against falling down the latest social media conspiracy theory rabbit hole.


Happy Thanksgiving all.

Fingers crossed for you, 2Full. I hope the results and prognoses keep coming back in your favor. May you get more years than you can handlr with your grandkids.

Reminds that I'm grateful for the years of connection and vulnerability between close friends that have made the physical distance this year more tolerable. I have a friend whose esophageal cancer came back. His condition qualified for a unique surgery with high rates of success but esophageal cancer is a wiley bast ard. I haven't been able to travel to the east coast this year to see him which has been tough. But ultimately I am grateful to know that in the past I took the time and dedicated a week to helping him with treatment. Being there for the people that matter is invaluable.

I've appreciative to have learned before this year how important it is to live in the moment and support your community. 2020 has been enough of a challenge without regret sneaking in through the cracks.

This is a great thread!

I think there's so many things to be grateful for! Family is a wonderful thing. This pandemic for me has meant being home since March. Spending countless hours with my wife and kids. Many hours spotting for wildlife with my boys, shed hunting, etc... Grateful for an employer that's been so good to me during these times.

Now, as my wife and boys return to school, I get to work full-time, while playing daddy day care for our one and only daughter that we adopted as a newborn in April of 2019. We had six sons before being blessed with the adoption of our daughter. Having a daughter is pretty cool!

Seeing BGDs photos made me want to post a few of my own! He's absolutely right, you can see God's hand in all the beauty around us!

Thanks for posting this CPA. I believe strongly in the power of living a grateful life. This past year has made me particularly grateful for my family, especially my wife. I also better appreciate the blessing of steady employment and health.

I have much to be thankful for as well. I am thankful for an understanding wife who supports me in all my shenannigans. We have had almost 25 years of ups and downs and laughter and tears. There isn't another person I would ever want to tackle life with. I am thankful for good health that allows me to get outside and do hard things. Eyes that can still spot game and ears that can still hear a distant bugle. I am thankful for good hunting buddies like AFCYN and others who are like family. I am thankful for shared hunts and memories made. I wish all of you a Thanksgiving to be thankful for.

Nate
