Happy Thankgiving – What I’m Thankful For

I like to wish all John Chow dot Com readers a happy and safe Thanksgiving holiday. Thanksgiving is not only a time to spend with family and enjoy a nice turkey dinner, it’s also a time to reflect on the things that we are thankful for. With that in mind, I would like to share some of things I’m thankful for as we enter the holiday season.

I am thankful for my wife Sarah, who has supported me from day 1. The saying “behind every successful man, there is a woman” is a true one and a big reason I am where I am today is because of her unyielding support.

I am thankful for all the friends I have made during my Internet journey. Many of these relationships have turned into lifelong friendships. They say you are a lucky man if you can say you have one true friend in life. If that is really the criteria then I can safely say I am a super lucky guy.

I am thankful for everyone who reads this blog. It’s been an amazing journey seeing my blog grow from a handful of readers to the many thousands it welcomes today. You’re the reason I continue to update this blog. A big thanks goes out to my sponsors as well. They help pay the cost of running this place.

I am thankful to whoever invented Black Friday. Not because of the great shopping deals but because it makes me a lot of money to help pay for all those Christmas gifts.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! :mrgreen:
