“Thanksgiving, man…not a good day to be my pants.” –Kevin James

I saw that quote from Kevin James and thought, “Yeah…that’s about right.” Funny as it is, however, Thanksgiving is about so much more than turkey and napping and football (all three of which are thoroughly enjoyed at my house). It is, as its name implies, a time to take a step back and recognize all of the blessings in one’s life. Here are just a few of the things I’m thankful for this holiday season:

I’m also thankful for the Detroit Tigers (who would’ve thought they’d make the World Series?), U of M basketball, (Go Blue!), and those who give their time, talent, and treasures to those who are less fortunate. That’s wonderful to see.

How about you? What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving? And who else out there could use a pair of pants with a little elasticity?
