I'm writing this the day after the US holiday of Thanksgiving. Lots of things are said about Thanksgiving, positive, negative, in between. The core concept of the holiday is to take a moment to take stock of what you have. It's a good idea. Every so often, look around and acknowledge, depending on anyone's situation, of course, just how good we have it. I for one am grateful for the age we live in. Are there challenges? Enough for everyone. However, we live in an age of wonder, and the overall trajectory seems to be up. I'm extremely grateful for the past. I'm optimistic for the present, and I'm excited for the future. We'll see what it brings. Regardless, taking stock, I'm just grateful and don't have a problem saying that.
