I have many things to be thankful for in my life. My father is doing well after several illnesses, my children are successful adults, and my wife and I have celebrated over 32 years of marriage. My dad has dealt with prostate cancer and oral cancer in the past few years. He now has regained most of his strength and lived independently. My two children are both happy. My daughter is happily married and working as a physical therapist for Children's Hospital Central California. My son is in New York attending college while working toward his goal of serving as an U.S. Air Force officer. My wife and I are enjoying life without dependent children. Sometimes I cannot believe the love of my life has put up with me for so long. Yes, I truly have many things to be thankful for today.
